PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A critical and often overlooked part of any math program is the use of proper mathematical language. Did you know that by 5th grade there are 53 geometry terms your students need to comprehend?

This 31 page math dictionary uses easy and clear definitions as well as formulas and examples so that students can learn and understand new math words without difficulty or cumbersome language. Most definitions include diagrams and/or illustrations for the visual learner. Over 300 common math terms are organized alphabetically for quick reference. When students are uncertain of a word or its meaning, this simple and straightforward dictionary is a good starting place. Make copies for your students so that they can place it in their math folder at the beginning of the year.

It is appropriate for students in grades 4-10. Since it covers most mathematics vocabulary, it is aligned with the CCSS.

Love this! I keep it on my thumb drive and it's always ready to pull up and use when my GED students have a question about math terminology. Only one disappointment - I see that it was included in the free items last week, and I had already purchased it! It is a great resource - thanks!
On  May 12, 2012Scipi answered:
I am so sorry you missed the freebie for Teacher Appreciation Week. But I am glad your GED students find this dictionary helpful. My remedial college math students are constantly using it.
