A resource to support teaching the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics to students who speak English as an additional language or dialect (ACARA, 2014), including Indigenous language speaking (ILS) students, provides language and cultural considerations and suggested teaching strategies linked to content descriptions. Critical analysis of this resource shows much scope for improvement. There is inconsistency between the language expectations of the resource and curriculum and the English language learning progressions of ILS students (NTDET, 2009). Few suggestions are specific for ILS students. I provide recommendations to improve the resource for teachers of ILS students drawing on substantial prior research.
