Big Ideas Math has support for English Language Learners throughout the program. First, the Multi-Language Glossary online translates the vocabulary words into 14 different languages. There are Vocabulary Flash Cards as well, which include the definition in English and a picture when appropriate. Students can practice their English using either of these two support pieces.
Author Laurie Boswell took special note of English Language Learners. Throughout the Teaching Edition, teachers are provided with Support for English Language Learners. Laurie has incorporated tips and techniques for teachers to use with their students. These appear several times in every chapter and can be found directly where and when a teacher would use them.
