enVision® Mathematics – Language Support in Mathematics

By Jim Cummins

In order to teach mathematics effectively to all students and to help newcomer students and other ELLs to catch up academically as quickly as possible, we need to get students actively engaged in “doing mathematics.” Students are much more likely to get excited about a subject such as mathematics when they see its relevance to their own lives and when they understand how mathematics can provide powerful insights into social and physical realities. Students’ understanding of academic content across the curriculum will be enhanced when teachers look for possibilities to integrate mathematics with the teaching of other subjects and also when they focus on the language of mathematics as a way of developing students’ growing awareness of how academic language works.
