Two processes involved in reading mathematics are discussed in this document: eye movements and relating the mathematical idea to the appropriate word or symbol. Many kinds of eye movements are used in mathematics--around, top-to-bottom, bottom-to-top, diagonal, backward and forward, and follow the arrow. Examples of each kind are presented. The language of mathematics uses many kinds of words--those that are primarily mathematics words, words of everyday usage, and words that have several different meanings, some mathematical and some not. Many examples of each of these kinds of words are presented as incentives for reading and mathematics teachers to cooperatively explore techniques used in reading that may be adapted to mathematics.
