Standards Compliance

All pages throughout this web site comply with priority 1 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.

All pages throughout this web site validate as XHTML 1 Strict. They are structured using semantic markup. For example, an H1 tag is used for the title of each page, H2 is used for subheadings, H3 for tertiary headings, etc. In particular, this enables JAWS users to skip to the next post using ALT+INSERT+2.

All table cells are explicitly associated with their corresponding header cells to aid screen readers in rendering them in a clear and meaningful way. Where applicable, all tables contain captions and summaries.

Navigation aids

All pages have rel="home" links to aid navigation in text-only browsers. Netscape 6 and Mozilla users can also take advantage of this feature by selecting View ⁄ Show/Hide ⁄ Site Navigation Bar ⁄ Show Only As Needed (or Show Always).

All pages have a “skip navigation” link to allow text-only browsers and screen readers to skip directly to the content of the document.

A Site Map is available which contains links to all of the pages within the web site.

Links

Whenever possible, link text is written to make sense out of context to aid browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) that allow the user to browse a list of links culled from a page. Many links contain additional descriptive information in the title tag.

There are no links that contain Javascript in their href attributes. All links can be followed by any browser, regardless of whether scripting is turned off. All links that open new windows inform the user within the contents of the title attribute.

Images

All images include descriptive text provided through the alt attribute.

Design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser does not support style sheets, the content of the page is still readable.

This site uses only relative font sizes to ensure compatibility with text resizing features in visual browsers.

Here's What People Are Saying

Our school subscribes to the Exemplars Library. I find the formative tasks aligned to the Common Core are strong and can be easily embedded in any curriculum. Having a more accessible and more challenging version of each task provides teachers' support as they have the resources to problem solve across different levels of understanding in their classrooms … Students are enjoying the tasks and are demonstrating a deeper understanding of the underlying concepts of the standards as they apply formal math language, accurate representations and connections.
