The mathematics classroom generates its own complex mix of everyday language and discipline specific language and mastery of this is key to success in the mathematics classroom. the research literature in mathematics education range from asserting that mathematics is a universal language, to claiming that mathematics is itself a language, to describing how mathematical language is a problem. Rather than joining in these arguments, I File Size: KB.

Gibbs wasn’t the first notable scientist to call mathematics a language. Galileo Galilei beat him to it by more than years. In Il Saggiator (The Assayer), published in Rome in , the Italian astronomer wrote: “[The universe] cannot be read until we have learned the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is is written in mathematical language.”Cited by: 5. Mathematics teachers must attend to all students, including those who speak a first language other than English or have related cultural differences, and ensure that all have access and opportunities to learn mathematics and to reveal what they know. Every student's cultural and linguistic heritage.
