I am a fan of spending time “Talking” about maths with my students, especially talking about the words needed to 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 the meaning saves a whole world of confusion and helps the kids feel knowledgable 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 predictor of students’ comprehension
- Students need to know 90-95% of the words in a text before they can comprehend that text
- Vocabulary need to be explicitly taught first
- Students from low socio economic areas need greater support
- Teaching math vocabulary can help raise student achievement levels
- Students with high vocabularies are better at mathematical reasoning
So it’s pretty clear that including math vocabulary activities is a winner!
