Math Vocabulary in the Classroom – Middle School Math and Science

Exploration of Math Vocabulary

Before providing the definition of a math concept, see if your students can create their own definition in pairs or groups. Give students a list of examples and non-examples of the word and have them write the meaning of the word. Have each group or pair, share their definition  Engage in a discussion about the word and its meaning. As a class define the word.  This will help students to understand the meaning of the math vocabulary and see how it is used in math.

At the bottom of the page you can get a FREE activity that shows how to explore math vocabulary with your students. The activity is on rational numbers, but you can use the format to introduce any term that you are working on.
