Elementary school math teaching benchmarks in measurement and data include descriptions and estimates of length, angles, weight, and capacity that shift to applications such as telling time, working with money, and interpreting data. These provide skills that are indispensable in common daily activities such as finances and quantifying dimensions.
The math vocabulary lists are based on the Common Core Elementary Math Standards. VocabularySpellingCity has selected the elementary math words that apply to the key math concepts and written level-appropriate elementary math definitions combined with meaningful example sentences. Elementary 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 Elementary School - Measurement & Data
VocabularySpellingCity provides games, worksheets, and quizzes that help establish a cognizance of words describing standard units, their relationships to size, and how they are added and subtracted. This leads to more complex math vocabulary to illustrate concepts such as unit conversion and geometric measurement. Common core standards require students to be able to describe and associate measurable attributes indirectly and by repeating units of length. The definitions learned in this section are applied in various sciences and continue to be used in middle and high school. The measurement & data word lists below deliver the necessary means to acquire the related mathematical skills and measure up to the highest expectations.
