Abstract / Introduction

Reading and Writing Mathematics

Much attention is given in schools to supporting learners to read and write, whether this is in mother tongue or in learning a foreign language.

Far less attention is given to support learners with reading and writing using the language of mathematics.

This MESH Guide focusses on this area.
