Math and English Language Learners
Math is not the same the world over: neither is it the same
in different languages. Many students,
along with their families who
come to the United States, bring different, and equally valid, math
concepts and skills with them. This page also includes Ethnomathematics resources.
Math and
Students with Special Needs
Students with special needs may
learn math differently, but the math they can learn is no different from the
math learned by all students.
Students with
