The application of ratios to describe proportional relationships is a difficult concept to grasp, as students tend to confuse ratios with fractions. A ratio represents two integers that compare proportional amounts, and these proportional relationships increase accordingly. It is crucial in a middle school math curriculum to make the distinction between the two, and to ensure that students have a strong understanding of the related definitions.

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.
