I have to simplify, to reword the questions for my students, and then they can do it. Spending time early in the year analyzing the structure of the mathematics textbook with students can help them to read and comprehend that text.

It is clear that simple exercises such as these can help students to interpret mathematics text by looking at all the words, rather than assuming that a calculation is always sought. Some seemingly did not look at the words at all; they simply executed the calculation. For example, right angles are often drawn with one vertical line and with one perpendicular line extending from it to the right. Using math and reading across the curriculum are also important. Do you indicate numbers with numeric symbols, or with words? In a traditional reading paragraph, there is a topic sentence at the beginning and the remaining sentences fill in details that expand on and support this main idea; in a mathematics problem, the key idea often comes at the end of the paragraph, in the form of a question or statement to find something e. The reading level is too hard for the students. For example: The words of and off cause a lot of confusion in solving percentage problems, as the percent of something is quite distinct from the percent off something. Reading Requirements for Mathematics Text Let's look at some ways in which mathematics text differs from text in other subjects. Teachers need to provide explicit scaffolding experiences to help students connect the text to their prior knowledge and to build such knowledge.The equal sign can represent quantities of exactly the same value, or items that are equivalent. Explain your reasoning. In this perspective literacy activities in the classroom become crucial.

My notes show that the teacher spoke in a soft, conversational tone. In addition, most reading teachers do not teach the skills necessary to successfully read in mathematics class.

They need to develop the simple strategy of taking the main question apart and listing the individual questions separately. In mathematics, however, addition can result in an increase, a decrease, or no change at all depending on what number is being added. Mathematical terms such as prime, median, mean, mode, product, combine, dividend, height, difference, example, and operation all have different meanings in common parlance. We are explicitly asking for a numerical answer. Rosen, originally published in and now in its 13th edition, was the first. Teachers need to provide explicit scaffolding experiences to help students connect the text to their prior knowledge and to build such knowledge. If we intend for students to understand mathematical concepts rather than to produce specific performances, we must teach them to engage meaningfully with mathematics texts. Participating in understanding and composing meaningful written, visual and spoken texts;.. Other strategies include dialoguing with students about any difficulties they may have in understanding a problem and asking different students to share their understanding.For example, right angles are often drawn with one vertical line and with one perpendicular line extending from it to the right. Next, he drew two squares.

There seems to be an idea that somehow it is unfair to expect students to interpret problems on standardized tests and in curriculum texts: after all, what does evaluating student reading skills have to do with mathematics? How could we use the pictures, charts, and graphs to predict or anticipate content?

I have to simplify, to reword the questions for my students, and then they can do it. Can they decide what information is important? My notes show that the teacher spoke in a soft, conversational tone. When we talk about students learning to read such texts, we refer to a transaction in which the reader is able to ponder the ideas that the text presents. She clearly enunciated the content vocabulary required for the lesson and clarified the meanings of nouns and adjectives related to the topic, and of the verbs for the procedures necessary to complete the activity. It was interesting to see the different ways that students interpreted this simple exercise. Other strategies include dialoguing with students about any difficulties they may have in understanding a problem and asking different students to share their understanding. One mathematics teacher, for example, who seemed to un-. Such sidebars often contain a series of questions that are not part of the actual exercises. Certainly teachers try to help students to read and interpret mathematics text and discuss problem-solving strategies with them. You know writing across the curriculum is important.My notes show that the teacher spoke in a soft, conversational tone. In these we might find a mixed review of previous work, extra skills practice, a little vignette from an almanac, a historical fact, or a connection to something from another culture. It was interesting to see the different ways that students interpreted this simple exercise.

How can I help students connect this concept to their lives?
