I am a fan of spending time “Talking” about maths with my students, especially talking about the words needed to learn a new math concept. In this blog post, we’ll share with you the research and the math vocabulary resources so you can start extending your students’ math vocabulary today!

A quick 5-minute brainstorm list of math words and their meaning saves a whole world of confusion and helps the kids feel knowledgeable about maths BEFORE they’ve even solved a math problem!

So for me, learning math words is a ‘MUST’ in all my math lessons!

And I’m not the only one who sees the value in learning math vocabulary to increase students’ achievement in maths.

Did you know that there’s a ton of research to support the importance of good math vocabulary and achievement levels?

Yep! Researchers have found that spending time on building math vocabulary will have a huge impact on student achievement.

Studies by Swan & Dunstan; Hirsh & Nation found:

- vocabulary is connected with reading comprehension and is a predictor of students’ comprehension
- Students need to know 90-95% of the words in a text before they can comprehend that text
- Vocabulary needs to be explicitly taught first
- Students from low socioeconomic areas need greater support
- Teaching math vocabulary can help raise student achievement levels
- Students with high vocabulary are better at mathematical reasoning

So it’s pretty clear that including math vocabulary activities is a winner!
