It’s a subject many of us dreaded in school. It’s a subject many of us would hope to avoid at all costs in our ESL classroom. Why is math making an appearance on BusyTeacher.org? Because, believe it or not, math can be fun! It can even be a useful subject for teaching your students not only the basics of English numbers, but also topics like spelling and shapes - and even more advanced topics like sales and negotiations.
While math probably isn’t an absolute necessity in an ESL classroom, there’s no reason to avoid it. With BusyTeacher.org’s 105 math worksheets, you won’t be diving into any algebra or calculus with your students - just sharing how the English language describes numbers, relations between amounts, different kinds of shapes, and so on.

Mathematics (from Greek μάθημα máthēma "knowledge, study, learning") is the study of quantity, space, structure, and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns and formulate new conjectures. Mathematicians resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proofs, which are arguments sufficient to convince other mathematicians of their validity. The research required to solve mathematical problems can take years or even centuries of sustained inquiry. However, mathematical proofs are less formal and painstaking than proofs in mathematical logic.
