With high school algebra, students enter a realm of complex mathematical computation. To succeed, they need a firm grounding in high school algebra terminology. A high school student in the ninth grade confronts equations and symbols manipulated with arithmetic operations, while a 12th grade student advances to the analysis and use of functions. Understanding the relations of numbers and symbols, the algebra operations performed with them, and their expression in graphs provides grounding for using algebra in science.
The math vocabulary lists are based on the Common Core High School Math Standards. VocabularySpellingCity has selected the high school math words that apply to the key math concepts and written level-appropriate high school math definitions combined with meaningful example sentences. High school students can use these materials for reinforcement to build understanding or assessment. Teachers can import the lists into their account and then edit or extend the lists for their own purposes.

Common Core State Standards Overview for High School Algebra
Through entertaining high school algebra word games, word lists, and printable worksheets that conform to the Common Core State Standards, VocabularySpellingCity helps students understand algebra vocabulary in context. This thorough knowledge of terminology allows high school students to manipulate algebraic structures and solve systems of equations. High school algebra may be complex, but learning algebra terminology inside and out makes the work much easier, helping students prepare for the day they’ll be planning those space walks or shaping those new hydro dams.
