Abstract

The ever-increasing presence in Italian school of Italian L2 children is an established reality. Language learning is a priority: it is the gateway to all school subjects and “social life” in the new country. Unfortunately, language learning has its own times, which often collide with schooling. Consequently, while a child is learning a language, he/she is excluded from many other subjects, especially scientific, thus accumulating gaps. The mathematical operations visual dictionary takes traditional language access tools (visual dictionaries) and verge them for mathematical concepts, implementing traditional illustration with the interactive media declined through the principle of understanding by doing.
