Abstract This study aimed to develop TactiMath Flips, an instructional material for learners with visual impairments in an inclusive classroom. This qualitative research study utilized a product development design. In achieving the goals of this study, the participants selected were experts such as SPEd teachers and engineers. A total of ten (10) experts were interviewed personally. Specifically, five (5) SPED teachers from Consolacion Central Elementary School and five (5) engineers served as the participants of the study. Data was gathered by conducting interviews. The collected data was analyzed using the thematic analysis method of Braun and Clark which resulted in seven (7) themes. The study results revealed that TactiMath Flips in an inclusive classroom are most effective in enhancing the learning experiences of learners with visual impairments, however, certain suggestions and recommendations were given by the SpEd teachers and Engineers to improve the TactiMath Flips, it doesn't have any hazardous substances and materials that can harm the learners, it is safe to use. With embossed number shapes and braille dots, the TactiMath Flips is effective and accessible to learners with visual impairment in an inclusive classroom. Challenges include students' readiness and potential distractions for learners with disabilities. To improve the TactiMath flips, researchers’ recommendations include adding an audio feature and improving the quality of the braille dots.
