The pack contains all the words and phrases that children need to understand and use if they are to make good progress in mathematics.

Here are some ways in which the Flashcards can be used:

  • Print out sets of vocabulary appropriate to the lesson being taught & display it on the board, encouraging the children to use it when discussing their maths
  • Useful for Classroom Support Assistants use with individuals/small groups and to support children learning English as an additional language
  • The Flashcards make a valuable contribution to classroom numeracy displays
  • Display sets of words appropriate to the current numeracy topic for the children to learn and spell correctly

There are lots of other ways in which the Vocabulary Flashcards can be used!

An invaluable resource - all the mathematical vocabulary you will ever need for Key Stage 2 at the touch of a button!There are three main ways in which children's failure to understand mathematical vocabulary may show itself:

  • children do not respond to questions in lessons
  • they cannot do a task they are set
  • they may perform poorly in tests

Their lack of response may be because:

  • they do not understand the spoken or written instructions
  • they are not familiar with the mathematical vocabulary, eg. words such as 'difference', subtract', 'divide' or 'product'
  • they may be confused about mathematical terms such as 'odd' or 'table', which have different meanings in everyday English
  • they may be confused about other words, like 'area' or 'divide', which are used in everyday English and have similar, though more precise, meanings in mathematics

Therefore, it is important for children to acquire appropriate vocabulary so that they can participate in the activities, lessons and tests that are part of classroom life.

Mathematical language is crucial to children's development of thinking. If children don't have the vocabulary to talk about division, or perimeters, or numerical difference, they cannot make progress in understanding these areas of mathematical knowledge.
