Use and development of mathematical language in bilingual learning settings

  title={Use and development of mathematical language in bilingual learning settings},
  author={Rebecca Klose},
Bilingual forms of teaching and learning have become common practice in Germany. However, the idea of teaching mathematics bilingually has not been totally accepted yet. The ongoing study aims to investigate how young learners taught bilingually use and develop mathematical language in both of their target languages, with a focus on the usefulness of the communication tool PriMaPodcast. Parts of the research project and the interactive process of producing mathematical audio podcasts are…

The use of artifacts and different representations by producing mathematical audio-podcasts

This paper focuses on the role of artifacts and different forms and modes of representation when learning mathematics at primary school level. This will be exemplified alongside the use of an

Mathematical audio-podcasts for teacher education and school

This article allows for various learning groups—which are made up of university students or school students—to create audio podcasts, either at German universities or schools, for the purpose of strengthening understanding of various mathematical topics.
