Unit 2

The Importance Of Reading For Understanding

Objectives

Many students struggle with understanding what they are reading in a math problem. Math has its own language and to some students this is like learning a foreign language. Students who have low reading levels struggle with understanding what they are reading. Even students who are on level readers can struggle with translating math problems. This is where close reading can help.
