There’s a ton of research out there to support the need to build and expand students’ math vocabulary. In this blog post we’ll share it and the Math Vocabulary Resources you need to get started today! 

Researchers have found that spending time in your math lessons on building math vocabulary will have a huge impact on student achievement levels, and can even improve results in state testing.

 Studies by Swan & Dunstan; Hirsh & Nation highlighted the impact that an extensive vocabulary  has, including:

  • 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 MUST!
