The language of mathematics often confuses children, and it is sometimes difficult for the teacher to explain the meaning of mathematical terms simply but accurately.
This new revised edition offers an up-to-date dictionary of math terms used in elementary and middle schools. The definitions are written in simple language that children can understand, yet are clear, precise, and concise. The terms are supported by hundreds of examples and illustrations.
This is essentially a dictionary for students, but I hope that teachers and parents will also find it helpful.
