Teaching Young Learners Mathematics: A CLIL Approach

Sat, Dec 4, 14:00-14:30 Asia/Taipei Room B (Google Meet)

As literature indicates, it can be argued that mathematics is a language because it has its own set of rules, and with a finite number of symbols an infinite number of utterances can be created. Students need to master this language in order to read, understand, write down, and discuss ideas. In a CLIL lesson, both the learning of mathematics concept and the simultaneous learning of a second or foreign language is emphasized. This present paper will examine the following two aspects: How to scaffold young learners to process the mathematics concept through a second language? How to guide young learners to learn the mathematics language?
