Posted by EALEE - 12 May. 2018 - Classroom Materials

This resource is very helpful to newly arrived students who are at the early stage of acquiring English and also useful for native English speakers who are not yet secure with the comprehension of some mathematical terms. Students who are new to English often have difficulty in completing mathematical problems because of lack of English vocabulary, so this resource will be of considerable value to them.     Maths Words for ESL / EAL / ELL provides opportunities for students to develop English vocabulary related to mathematics. By using the reference pages, students are able to successfully complete the 25 worksheets while learning and consolidating new English vocabulary. The 12 reference pages could also be made into booklets and be kept by students for future use.     The 3 contents pages and samples of the resource can be seen in the TpT preview.
