The number of students whose first language is not English is increasing. As a result, many teachers need new resources to adapt their teaching of mathematics to support the mathematical learning of students with limited English, and to include them in rigorous instruction. By incorporating multimodal strategies, teachers can more confidently teach standards-based mathematics that can reach all of their students. Through simple, straightforward language and examples, this resource helps teachers develop specialised understanding and strategy knowledge for supporting a high level of mathematics learning along with language acquisition.
