Strong command of language helps students learn math

The Victoria Advocate – Barba Patton

“In hopes of helping, I researched the released state math questions for third through fifth grades from the last few years. What I found was quite surprising. I found 200 or more words that could confuse a student in each of those grade levels. Of the 200 words, some are repeated in several questions. If a child does not know a word in the second question and that same word appears in question 15, the child may not know how to answer two questions. It’s no wonder students with limited language skills have problems with the math section of the test.”(more)
