This presentation will describe an experience carried out over the last four years to describe the differences and difficulties of students from four countries recently arrived to secondary schools in Spain. We also show the website designed from this research knowledge and where you can find guidelines for help when receiving students. We will present how we can work in mathematics in the special reception classes for newly arrived students from different countries. The objectives of Presentation are: 1. Show the results of a comparative study of culturally diverse students, particularly Ecuador, Colombia, Morocco and Rumania compared with students of our culture in solving math problems. 2. Explain how context influences the mathematical problems for resolution. 3. Compare levels of mathematical competence of students from different countries with local students. 4. Submit Migramat website to improve the mathematical competence of immigrants students newly arrived. The results show the importance of taking into account the curricula of the countries of origin and the methodology and rules governing the mathematics classroom and the school of origin.
