Chapter 1: The Language of Math

Chapter 1: The Language of Math Comparatives
The grammatical structure of a math problem differs greatly from grammar structures used in everyday speech. Of particular importance, and often a primary source of confusion for English language learners, are comparatives (for example, small, smaller; fast, faster).Implications for High-Stakes TestingMany mathematics test questions require students to compare given information to determine the correct answer. Without understanding the concept of comparatives, as well as the associated vocabulary, students cannot complete the mathematical processing necessary for solving the problem.

Lesson Plan for Comparatives
Materials
••Yarn, in different colors, cut to varying lengths, three or four pieces per group
Miscellaneous objects (such as school supplies), two per groupActivities
1.To introduce the concept of comparatives, write Comparatives and the words tall, taller, and than on the board. Have four students of different heights stand up. Compare using the following framework: “Joe is tall, but Lee is taller. Mary is taller than Lee. See All Chapters
