Professor Art Karshmer, of the University of San Francisco School of Management (formerly School of Business and Professional Studies), and Chairman of the Department of Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship there, is a pioneer in the use of technology and computer-based systems to teach mathematics to the blind. Without a knowledge of math — the Mother of Science — blind students are effectively barred from the study of all the core or "stem" sciences which rely on math as their root language. Using computers and computer-based devices, Professor Karshmer has devised a system which translates the 2-dimensional realities of mathematical problems into the otherwise single dimensionality of braille to allow a blind student to impress those realities into their visual cortex through touch and electronic feedback.
