Language of Math

This session has several pseudonyms:

  • Learning the Universal Language of Mathematics (Yes, We Do Write in Math Class) TMathC, 2017 and ATMNE, 2017
  • Finding the Words to Speak, Read, and Write the Language of Mathematics NCTM Hartford, 2018
  • The Universal Language of Mathematics (Yes, We Do Write in Math Class) NCTM Annual, 2018

While math is a universal language, it can still be challenging to provide equitable access to English language learners and native speakers with language-based disabilities. In this session we discuss the difficulties such students face, practice strategies to engage them and learn how to adapt activities to your populations.
