Math Definition Dictionary

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 2 pages | Grades: 4 - 6

A template for students to create a dictionary full of math vocabulary.

When you come across a difficult concept in Math, allocate a student to be an expert on that particular idea.

They need to research the term, take a page from the class Math Definition Dictionary, and then write their own definition for the class to refer to. They also draw the concept in any way that they feel depicts the idea. They are then known as the class expert for that concept and if students need any further clarification, they need to see the author of that definition.

Collate the dictionary together with brass brads or in a binder with plastic sleeves so concepts and terms can be continuously added.
