Episode 4: Understanding Math Vocabulary

Students must learn math concepts and vocabulary simultaneously. Computational knowledge and fluency flow from being able to speak the language of math. We discuss ways that students can interact with the language, learn vocabulary, and our own classroom struggles trying to teach students to be more mathematically literate.

We read and discuss theĀ  2015 article by Riccomini, Smith, Hughes, & Fries, “The Language of Mathematics: The Importance of Teaching and Learning Mathematical Vocabulary.” See our Zotero library for a full bibliography.
