Reading math is a skill that has to be taught. I often have students read
a paragraph aloud, from the text, and then we dissect the paragraph word
by word. What is being said? why is it said that way?--we do this in
Ceometry (UCSMP) and in Calculus (Stein/Barcellos).

Reading math is like reading poetry--it has to be done slowly, pondering each word..this is a skill that has to be taught.
