I went looking for CCSS math vocabulary resources this morning, and I really thought there would be a plethora. Not so much. I did find one amazing website, that is referenced quite often by other school districts’ websites. Why reinvent the wheel, right? The Granite School District in Salt Lake City has vocabulary lists, illustrated cards, and vocabulary development activities by grade level. It’s really an awesome resource. Check out pictures of some of their word wall cards: 

If you know of other great vocabulary resources, be sure to comment and share!.

    I found math vocabulary cards for K-2 on Anna Brantley’s tpt store. It includes math, rdg, and la vocabulary with pictures and examples.

    I am looking for math vocab for 8th grade. I saw the secondary vocab but am trying to find it specifically for 8th grade. Any ideas?

    I tried to use the link in the posting above, but it takes me to “Page Not Found”. Does anyone know what the correct link might be?

    Ok I love this but truly don’t want to print 120 pages. Has anyone seen anything that had just the third sectio with all three parts of the definition, picture and word but not section 1 or 2?

      Can’t you just choose to print only the pages you want?

    Hi, this is a great resource, I direct the teacher I work with to it often. But I wanted to point out that it comes from Canyons School District, not Granite. Many of the lessons and other resources come from teachers who are working toward their Elementary Math endorsement.

      The Canyons School District website actually credits Granite for the vocabulary cards, so that’s who I credited in the blog post.

    I am wondering about some of the terms used– especially at grade one. Why would children need to be exposed to the phrase additive identity property of zero? Surely we are not expecting 6 year olds to understand such terminology, are we? I do not have an issue with teaching the concept, but that one seems ridiculous. Where did these words actually come from?

      I would just say use the ones that fit within your state’s or district’s guidelines. It’s a great resource, but obviously should be adapted to each teacher’s needs.

    The link is not working again…I see in past comments you have fixed it a few times. I don’t know if you can fix it again but if you can- thanks!
