Although state education policy separates math from language many who have taught ESL learners realize that language and math are intimately intertwined. The challenge is to offer the ESL student the needed language support so that the student can access concepts -- and foundation -- even while acquiring the language.
This product can be used to teach rate, proportional ratios, and slope to learners at the very beginning of English or at higher English levels, including native speakers who may need that extra boost. Colorful and engaging, the slides present the concepts clearly without foregoing the opportunity for students to gain deep insight into what is being taught.
This PowerPoint can be used as part of the Math lesson, by the ESL teacher in the ESL class to preteach (prior to a classroom math lesson,, as a Math station PowerPoint (only if students know how to read or are paired with another who does or combined with audionote ipad or some other audio to read), or as a homework lesson put on a flashdrive. Regardless, if the materials are used appropriately, your student can gain confidence, skill, and academic language while learning these math concepts.
Have fun learning!
