Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate whether becoming mathematically literate, through the use of vocabulary development strategies will increase students success in completing mathematical word problems. It begins with a Literature Review which finds that the use of vocabulary in the mathematics classroom can help students gain a stronger reading comprehension, which in turn helps them to become better mathematicians. In chapter three is a Unit Plan on Logic for Math 10 and Math AB, and includes teacher lesson plan and many student worksheets. Chapter Four reviews the results, with an overview, summary of the Unit Plan, test results, copy of the questionnaire and personal reflections.
