Tracy, Dyanne M.
Childhood Education, v70 n4 p221-24 Sum 1994
Provides examples of typical mathematics statements that elementary school teachers use when teaching mathematics, demonstrating how they are imprecise or incorrect. Suggests ways teachers can present ideas more clearly and precisely, noting that appropriate mathematical language should help students gain conceptual understanding, rather than inadvertently confuse them.
