## How will you describe the language of mathematics?

The language of mathematics is the system used by mathematicians to communicate mathematical ideas among themselves, and is distinct from natural languages in that it aims to communicate abstract, logical ideas with precision and unambiguity.

## How do you get students to explain their thinking?

1.) As the student is explaining their thinking or their answer, record the main key words they say in a word bank of sorts. Then, restate to the student what you heard them say, and point to each word as you say it. Finally, have them record their thoughts using some or all of the key words you recorded for them.

## What is the importance of mathematical language?

Teaching and learning the language of mathematics is vital for the development of mathematical proficiency. Students’ mathematical vocabulary learning is a very important part of their language development and ultimately mathematical proficiency.

## What is an example of knowledge?

Knowledge is defined as what is learned, understood or aware of. An example of knowledge is learning the alphabet. An example of knowledge is having the ability to find a location. The state or fact of knowing.
