About HELP Math: Making the Language of Mathematics Accessible
ELL students struggle with the specialized language of math as well as the language of instruction. Only 10% of eighth-grade and 4% of 12th-grade Spanish-speaking students are performing at or above grade level. HELP Math is the only multimedia, supplementary Web-based program designed to increase comprehensibility and promote the acquisition of math and English-language skills. Research-based and tested in collaboration with the Colorado Department of Education, HELP Math targets ELL students, with a focus on Spanish-speaking middle-school students.
