Teaching Mathematics in English to Swedish Speaking Students: A systematic review of strategies for teaching mathematics to second language learners
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The Swedish government has authorised the teaching of mathematics in English to Swedish speaking students. Much of that teaching is performed by foreign trained native English speaking teachers lacking training in second language learners. This systematic review summarises international studies from the last ten years that deal with the teaching of mathematics to second language learners. The review shows that second language students working in a bilingual environment achieve higher rates of content and language knowledge than learners in a monolingual environment. This study also summarises some of the teacher practices that are effective for teaching mathematics in English to second language learners.
