As a math teacher, I believe that teaching students to communicate their ideas using the proper words can set them free to collaborate successfully with others. I created these posters for my classroom by asking myself, “Which words do I use on a daily basis that my students need to understand to be successful?” These posters are all related to FRACTIONS.

Ways I have used these posters:

1. Math Center Help: I printed the cards out 2 to 1 page on card stock, then used my Exacto knife at home to cut them out, leaving space at the top of each. I then laminated the cards, and stacked them on top of each other to create a smaller “help center” flip board that students can always help themselves to. (This is why the words are at the bottom of the cards!)

2. Classroom Posters: I’ve printed out the words I want to emphasize in a given unit 4 to a page, then cut them each out and glued them on a larger piece of paper and laminated it. This takes up less space in the room! You can also print them in a larger size if you have the room.

3. Student Interactive Notes: This year, I am printing these out 9 to a page, and having students cut them out in a group – not individually – for time’s sake! and glue them into their math notebooks. I intend to do this for each unit, creating a notebook of vocabulary words they can carry on to other math classes.

4. Additional reinforcement: I have created a fraction vocabulary crossword puzzle using the same words and definitions, so that students can use their vocabulary cards in their notebooks to find the answers to anything they are not sure of. It forces them to use the notes they have glued in to find the answers. (The crossword puzzles are also available on Teachers Pay Teachers).

There is a one page poster for each of the following words:

2. Common denominators
3. Comparison symbols
4. Composite number
5. Convert to Mixed Number
6. Cross Cancel
7. Denominator
8. Dividend
9. Dividing fractions
10. Divisor
11. Equivalent fractions
12. Factor
13. Fractions
14. Improper fraction
15. Least common multiple (LCM)
16. Mixed number
17. Multiplying fractions
18. Number lines
19. Numerator
20. Prime number
21. Product
22. Rational number
23. Reciprocal
24. Relatively prime
25. Simplifying fractions
26. Subtracting fractions
27. Unit fraction
Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
