ab: Summary: A teaching experiment in correlating the instruction of courses in
Elementary Algebra and Intermediate ESL is described whose results
suggest a measurable transfer of thought organization from algebraic
thinking into written natural English. It is shown that a proper
context to situate this new effect is (1) the Zone of Proximal
Development (ZPD) of L. Vygotsky and (2) a new concept of the
“Relative ZPD” characterizing the relationship between the ZPD of
arithmetic/algebra and ZPD of native/foreign language.
