1 Language as knowledge, language as educational medium

In a course like this, in which we are concerned with the teaching and learning of a language, we have the difficult task of simultaneously maintaining two conceptions of ‘language’. The first is as the subject matter of teaching and learning: the nature of the language which is being taught, the ways in which this language is defined by the curriculum of schools, and the ways it is used in the world which learners in teachers of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) classes are

1.10 Subtraction of decimal numbers

Subtraction of numbers can be used to answer questions such as 'what's the difference between two values?' or 'if something has decreased by a certain amount, what's its new value?'
