Room 156

This paper describes development of a new immersive 3D learning environment to increase mathematical skills of deaf children. The application teaches mathematical concepts and American Sign Language math terminology through user interaction with fantasy 3D virtual signers and environments. The program can be displayed in immersive devices and includes a gesture control system comprised of a pair of pinch gloves and a six-degrees-of-freedom wrist tracker.
