Mathematics and Language: Issues among Bilingual Arabs in English Medium Universities
Yushau, Balarabe
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v40 n7 p915-926 Oct 2009
This article is an attempt to highlight the language situation of bilingual Arab university students who are acquiring English as a second language, and at the same time learning mathematics in the new language of instruction. Furthermore, the article explores the educational implications of the language switch from Arabic to English as they relate to mathematics teaching and learning at the university level. Results of studies done with these students that may shed some light on the language situation are shared. Recommendations are also given for a way forward.
