Your ESL Math Toolbox

REA’s ESL Mathematics for Standardized Tests answers one of the central questions in ESL education today: How can a student master the special vocabulary and syntax of an academic subject like math while learning the English language itself?

The answer is an approach, used by this book and in classrooms across America, called content-based instruction. This approach allows for the integration of academic content and language learning in a way that recognizes the varied linguistic and ethnic backgrounds of diverse student populations.

REA’s ESL Mathematics for Standardized Tests presents English language learners with a clear path to learning math with these features:

- Easy-to-follow lessons
- Step-by-step examples
- Problem-solving tips
- Review exercises
- Exclusive “Focus on English” practice sets

This book can be used both by secondary students and by adult ESL students enrolled in one of the large number of adult ESL programs offered by U.S. community colleges.

In the end, mastering the material in this book will also help you get into the college of your choice. After all, the point of this integrated approach to learning is to aim higher.

Whether for employment, citizenship, high school equivalency, or further education—or for life itself—this book serves first as a handy study aid and then as a reliable reference.

Think of this book as a toolbox. Just as a screwdriver is good for some jobs and a hammer is good for others, we give you what you need, when you need it. And we clearly mark off the steps for you to follow to reach your goal of becoming better at math and more fluent in English.

Along the way, you will build your comfort with, and confidence in, the subject matter.

At the same time, you will refine the language skills that will allow you to express yourself clearly in your schoolwork and also as you go about daily living.
Not only will you do better on the all-important standardized tests—which can greatly affect your chances for success for a long time to come—but you will also find that a simple trip to the supermarket will become more pleasant!
If you’re an English language learner, this book will put you in command of essential math skills. Where you take it from there is up to you!
