    In their 1989 paper, "Conceptual Issues Related to Mathematics Achievement of Language Minority Children," Cocking and Chipman examine the mathematical ability of language minority - particularly bilingual - students, attempting to identify linguistic and cultural variables that might explain why their mathematical ability falls increasingly behind that of students who speak English as their primary language ("majority students"). They first investigate the relation between language and math ability, then look at external influences on performance such as teacher competencies and attitudes and parental attitudes and support.
