Digital Dictionaries are great.  Have a discussion about the vocabulary of your current unit of study by showing these on the interactive board or by having students work with them at the the computer.   Then, have the students brainstorm how they are going to write the definitions in their own words as well as make illustrations for their personal glossaries.

Happy Mathing,

Every website has its own unique features for the math vocabulary. The illustrations and animations will help students make the connections to the math concept. The site which clusters the words by grade level is helpful. Another way to understanding math !!
