High School Math Words

High school number and quantity studies build on a foundation of counting numbers that carries on from grade school and middle school all the way through 12th grade. Initially, this includes studying rational numbers and fractions, irrational numbers, and real numbers. At the high school level, math dealing with number and quantity expands to include exponents as well as imaginary and complex numbers. High school students who have a grounding in number and quantity vocabulary understand these concepts more quickly, using them in quantitative mathematical modeling and reasoning.

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.
