To All,

I am working on a grant involving mathematics instruction to ESL students
and I have a question about foreign language texts used in the US. Are they
simply translations of existing English language text books, or is there an
attempt to develop the mathematics in a way that would be compelling to the
particular language group? For example, is the Spanish version of a grade 6
text book essentially a word-for-word translation of the English text, or is
there material included that might appeal to Spanish-speaking cultures?
