The Press-Enterprise — The Teaching English Learners Early Mathematics Summer Institute at Chase Middle School, now in its second summer at the Menifee school, is intended to give teachers strategies for conveying math principles to English language learners.
“The purpose is to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics to English learners, especially in the early grades,” said Madeleine Jetter, a math professor at Cal State San Bernardino who is the project director.
It is funded by a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, with another roughly half-million dollars coming from the Toyota USA Foundation, the Packard Foundation and the Heising-Simons Foundation.
