EDUC 6980T - Teaching Mathematics: A Language-Focused Approach
(1 sem. cr.) Based on The Problem with Math Is English by Concepcion Molina, this course offers a new way to approach teaching math that can improve understanding for all students, including English language learners. Written to inspire “Aha!” moments, this book enables teachers to help students identify and comprehend math concepts by exploring them through the lenses of language and symbolism. The book also delves into such essential topics as multiplication, division, fractions, place value, proportional reasoning, graphs, slope, order of operations, and the distributive property.
In this course, educators critically reflect upon and analyze the book’s content with the goal of selecting specific practices to apply in their classrooms.
