It is at the middle school level that geometry really gets exciting, as applications to the real world become more apparent. Beginning in 6th grade and going through grades seven and eight, middle school students progress from solving problems of volume and surface area to studying the relationships between geometrical figures and then to real-world problem solving using cylinders, cones, and spheres.
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.

Common Core State Standards Overview for Middle School - Geometry
Thanks to the geometry word lists, middle school students can learn all of the specialized geometry terminology they need in a fun and enjoyable way. These geometry lists conform to the Common Core State Standards and can be used with all 20 of the VocabularySpellingCity word games as well as printable worksheets and online quizzes and tests. Learning the fascinating concepts and processes of geometry and its related vocabulary helps concrete applications take shape!
