Suggested Lists of Mathematical Language

by Grade Level

**
Glossary for Teachers:
**The
Glossaries, intended for teacher
use only, provide an understanding of the mathematical terms used in
PreK-grade 8 level instruction, and in Regents-approved courses entitled
Integrated Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2 and Trigonometry as
reflected in the
New York State
Mathematics Core Curriculum (Revised 2005).
We encourage all teachers to become familiar with these terms and use
them consistently throughout a student's educational program. For copies
of the glossary in other languages visit:

The
Suggested Lists of Mathematical Language
are presented for each PreK-grade 8 level instruction, and for
Regents-approved courses entitled Integrated Algebra, Geometry, and
Algebra 2 and Trigonometry. These lists are intended to engage New York
State educators and students in building a mathematical language. The
lists contain terms that are defined in the Glossary.
