High School Math Words

The teaching of high school mathematical functions relates closely to algebra and trigonometry as well as geometry. Functions are one of the most exciting subjects in high school mathematics because they bring students, from the 9th grade to the twelfth, close to real-world reasoning and problem-solving. In situations where one resulting quantity depends on changes in another, math functions help calculate everything from investment interest to the strength of earthquakes. But this fascinating flexibility becomes hard to explore without a firm grasp of the mathematics vocabulary relating to functions.

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.
