"Math is language, too," Phyllis and David Whitin (2000) remind everyone in their informative book about reading and writing in the mathematics classroom. This means that students in elementary school math classes are learning two distinct, yet related languages--one of numbers, the other of words. These languages of numbers and words are combined...

Learning mathematical problem solving is as easy as 1, 2, 3 when teachers use flexible instructional strategies.
Article
Problem solving, introduced in every grade and practiced throughout elementary school, is an essential foundation on which students build their understanding of mathematical ideas, operations, and relationships. This article discusses 1-2-3 Time, an instructional mode that promotes multimodal math learning in ways that engage and sustain students'...

... Today, rapid changes in technology; The restructuring of mathematics courses and the updating of course contents have brought along innovative ways to learn mathematics. In this context, many studies show that mathematics teaching supported by information technologies gives much better results than teaching mathematics with direct instruction and contributes positively to students' learning processes and academic success [66], [67]. ...
... The notion of math and comprehension being shared in math word problems is shared by researchers who have included these variables in their studies: Yonson (2017); Aliñab, Aguja, and Prudente (2018); Boonen, de Koning, Jolles, and van der Schoot (2016); Daroczy, Wolska, Meurers, and Neurk (2015); and Bautista, Mitchelmore, and Mulligan (2009). Whitin and Whitin (2000), as cited in Edwards, Maloy, and Anderson (2009), contend that mathematics is a language in itself. For these authors, pupils in elementary math classes are actually confronted with different, but somehow related, languages of numbers and words, which are conveniently both found in math word problems. ...
