The Literacy and Math Connection


Presenters:  Dr. Kristie Cerling and Ms. Tia Caster

Description: Vocabulary, writing, and reading are all key aspects of success in a math class.  By building literacy skills in a math class, students not only improve math skills but also literacy skills. For some students with math anxiety, this literacy connection adds to math class success.  For other students, it increases the depth of knowledge in the math class while increasing confidence in literacy.
