Math Dictionary for Kids: The Essential Guide to Math Terms, Strategies, and Tables

A must-have for parents and students alike, this comprehensive resource provides definitions, descriptions, and illustrations in all areas of elementary and middle school mathematics. It is designed to explain the language and concepts of mathematics in easily understood terms for school and home use.

Equipped with this handy reference of more than 400 illustrated definitions, children will be able to quickly find the definitions and illustrated examples that will enable them to solve many of the math challenges they face. Covering everything from "addend" to "zero," this comprehensive resource gives students definitions, illustrations, and examples that can help them solve math problems.

This handbook includes illustrated, concise explanations of the most common terms used in general math classes. The 400 illustrated definitions and examples are categorized by subjects that include:

• measurement,
• algebra,
• geometry,
• fractions and decimals,
• statistics and probability, and
• problem solving.

Each term has a concise definition and an example or illustration. This is a guide that needs to be in every child's desk.

The Math Dictionary is much more than a compilation of words and definitions. This book has been organized to reflect the different areas of mathematics taught in elementary and junior high schools. Within each category are all the terms commonly used in this field of study, concise definitions, and many examples and illustrations. In addition, the last chapter provides instructions for basic operations and tables of commonly-used facts and equivalents.

Review:

My students were impressed with the explanations of symbols and the ease of use. They also appreciated the fact that the book showed examples of processes rather than just giving definitions.

--Beth Hendrickson, Cobb County School District, Marietta, GA, Teaching Children Mathematics

Book Description:

When students encounter clear and concise illustrations and explanations of terms such as those in this book, they often retain the concept for a longer period of time. I strongly recommend that both students and mathematics teachers use this book. It can serve not only as a student reference, but also as a reference for teachers.

--Sue LeBeau, Audrey W. Clark School, Long Branch, NJ
