Gibberish or What? Use of Symbolic Language in Primary Mathematics
Quinnell, Lorna; Carter, Merilyn
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v18 n1 p8-14 2013
Lorna Quinnell and Merrilyn Carter examine the use of symbols in teaching mathematics and outline the difficulties students experience in "reading symbols and abbreviations." We are sure teachers will appreciate the way the authors have examined the use of symbols and abbreviations in NAPLAN testing and organized them into five distinct categories.
