Year 5 Math Vocabulary Printables

Need Year 5 Math Vocabulary Printables? You’re in the right place. Increase Student Math Vocabulary with our Printables, Posters, Online Games & Distance Learning Resources. 

By the time students have reached Year 5 the number of Math words they have seen, heard and used is in the thousands. If students don’t understand these math words their levels of mathematical achievement can be severely impacted.  But with our Math Vocabulary Resources, we’ve got you covered!

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

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

But don’t just take my word for it. 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!
