21st Century Math Vocabulary Fun

Posted on January 19, 2011. Filed under: Classroom environment, Math is a Language | Tags: , , , , |


Here are two really fun ways to play with math vocabulary. I would brainstorm as a class the words and phrases relevant to the unit.  I would also have cooperative groups make their own.  I would then have the students explain the relevance of the words they chose.

I like the cooperative group idea for the tags and vocabulary clouds. Also, instead of an anticipation survey, maybe the students can brainstorm before the unit is taught and then “add” to their graphic when the unit is completed. Would that be effective?

That is a great idea!
