In middle school, students make a considerable leap in their use and understanding of mathematical expressions and equations. Having learned arithmetic and the basics of operations on equations, sixth graders are introduced to algebra. In the seventh and eighth grade, students further expand their use of numerical expressions and equations. While learning such mathematical concepts as radicals and integer exponents may be interesting, it can also be difficult if math students don't have a firm grounding in mathematical terminology.
The math vocabulary lists are based on the Common Core Middle School Math Standards. VocabularySpellingCity has selected the middle school math words that apply to the key math concepts and written level-appropriate middle school math definitions combined with meaningful example sentences. Middle 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.
