Major Language Theorists influencing Learning of Mathematics
Nath, Baiju K.
Online Submission
Language is one attribute that sets humans apart from all other creatures and binds humans together across all geographic barriers. A word can cause a person to sink into the deepest despair or lift us to inspired action. Language can be the tool for great achievement in any discipline. Good understanding of the capabilities and needs of the individual child and a sound knowledge and belief in the goals of the language arts programme are vital factors in successful individualization of instruction. The theories of Piaget, Vygotsky, Chomsky, Skinner, Skemp, Coleridge, etc. debate the exact functions of language. Yet its role as a tool in conceptual thinking is undesirable. This paper tried to explore the significance of those theories in influencing language of mathematics, and thereby its significance in mathematics learning in developing countries.
