Reading Comprehension in Mathematics.
Clearing House, v72 n2 p81-88 Nov-Dec 1998
Argues that mathematics instruction is dependent not just on numbers and their manipulation, but on language, literacy, and comprehension. Uses original examples of mathematical texts to map out a rationale for the teaching of reading in math, and includes a range of practical suggestions for the math teacher that support the "spiraling" of language and literacy practices.
