Mathematics Vocabulary Development Using Critical Thinking. Each student edition incorporates mathematics vocabulary, problem solving, critical thinking, and journaling activities to complement any math program. Essential mathematics vocabulary words, based on the Common Core Standards, are identified at each level. A series of questions and/or activities based on Bloom’s Taxonomy guides students to higher level thinking and enhances vocabulary meaning with depth and complexity.
Vocabulary card sets provide excellent learning opportunities for students, because research shows that vocabulary instruction is positively correlated to comprehension. The combination of linguistic and non-linguistic representations promotes deeper understanding of content-area vocabulary.
