The Virtual Community of Practice (VCoP) for the Massachusetts SABES Center for Education and Career Planning (CECP).

The Mathematizing ESOL 2: Percentages and Decimals course builds upon and extends conceptual understanding of math topics and how they can be integrated into ESOL instruction. In the prerequisite to this course, Mathematizing ESOL 1, the focus is on math notation and operations with whole numbers. In this course, we extend that knowledge to include other rational numbers, with an emphasis on percentages and decimals. We will explore these concepts before looking at real life applications of these math skills and strategies to contextualize them in the ESOL classroom.
