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 poetryit has to be done slowly, pondering each word..this is a skill that has to be taught. Maxine
