Language in Mathematics? A comparative study of four national curricula Sigmund Ongstad Background This short, somewhat summative study builds on four co-ordinated small- scale investigations of the explicit role of language and communication in mathematics curricula in England, Norway, Sweden and Romania. The study aims at addressing major, relevant key issues for an overall, international framework for language(s) of schooling. The background papers and texts hence consist of a study of each country's curriculum (Pepin, 2007a, Hudson and Nyström, 2007, Singer, 2007a and Ongstad, 2007a). The Swedish and the Romanian studies both have an attachment. In the former, particular tasks for evaluating language in mathematics are discussed. The latter gives

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
