High School Math Words

High school statistics and probability classes challenge students from the ninth grade to the twelfth grade, going beyond merely calculating the percentages of answers on a poll or the frequency of certain events. Every statistician knows factors like bias, sample size, and the randomness of test samples can skew results, so proper management of data is crucial. To learn the methods and calculations for interpreting data based on quantitative variables, understanding independence and conditional probability, and otherwise dealing with statistics and probability, high school mathematics students need a grounding in related mathematical vocabulary. This is where our extensive word lists are most valuable.

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.
