Hi everyone !
So here's a weird title for something weird too. I will try to explain why I need your help. Just to start with, because I will talk about the French school system, I'm sory if I'm not clear enough, because there is no real translation, just equivalents.
I have in France a degree in Mathematics (a "licence", equivalent of Bachelor Degree) and this year I'm training for the national competitive examination to be a math teacher for people from 11 to 18 years old. I'll belong to the national education system if I succeed
In the system, I can obtain special certifications in order to practice differently and to lead special projects with our classes. It means that I have to take a special exam, and if I get the minimum grade of 10/20 that's ok, I pass.
So basically, after becoming a teacher, I wish to have a certification in English in order to be able to teach math in English in what we call "european sections" in Middle School and High School.
I'm still working on my English (unfortunately you can't see because I'm way better when I speak than when I write !), but I certainly have the level required for French schools. For those familiar with the Common European Framework of Reference for Language, I'm C1 (which is way higher than the French average level XD).
But my problem is that, in order to obtain at least 10/20, I must master maths in English, just the way it's teached in English speaking-countries.
I already worked a little with maths in english, but in order to learn I need to take back from the early grades where I can learn the pronunciation and stuff like that. I want my math in english to become natural ! I understand maths books for my level, but I need to think maths in english... I would like to find books that are used for the kids at school. And that's where I need you !
I have no idea how to get those books. In French it's already hard to get them because any search on Amazon leads to books helping for homework. I would like to have the "teacher book" used in class, to see americans or English people learn. I don't have any idea what can be the name of such books. For example I was typing "maths book 6th grade" but got nothing I wanted... Can you guys give me references of books ?
