Teaching Math and Science to Language Minority Children: Implications for Teachers
Factors influencing the learning of mathematics in the linguistically diverse classroom are examined, drawing on the literature of mathematics and science instruction and of multicultural education. Teachers are encouraged to be aware that several linguistic, cultural, and cognitive factors affect the learner's academic performance, and to use linguistically and culturally sensitive instructional methods and activities to ensure success in math.
