Math is a language!  If we want our kids to speak it, we have to teach it!  Here is a great place to get started! I love this article because it makes it very clear- the difference between everyday language and math words!

Everyday Language or Math Words

Split    or     Divide

Take Away   or   Subtract

Same     or    Congruent

What do you SPEAK in your math class?

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki
