Math Language. Math in Action. Workbook.
Echaore, Susan D.; Roderman, Winifred Ho
This workbook was designed as an easy-to-read, slower-paced text for students who have learning, reading, and language problems. As one of five workbooks to aid low achievers in problem solving, it focuses on language skills needed to read mathematical problems. Students learn to recognize and use a basic vocabulary of mathematical words, symbols, and abbreviations. Questions within the text repeatedly involve the students' attention, and their learning is checked and reviewed within each lesson. Word problem situations reflect mathematical problems that students might actually meet. Worksheets to accompany the workbook are available in the teacher's guide. The six units in the workbook are entitled: Words about Numbers, Words That Compare Numbers, Changing Numbers, Words about Money, Words That Measure, and Abbreviations and Symbols. A glossary is included. (MNS)
