Reading in the Mathematics Classroom by Diana Metsisto

The students know how to do the math, they just don't understand what the question is asking.

The thing I don't like about this new series is the way the problems are stated; they're hard for the students to get what to do.

The reading level is too hard for the students.

I have to simplify, to reword the questions for my students, and then they can do it.
