Activity Overview


When learning something new, it is important to have the words to describe it. This is especially true in Mathematics, where terminology is important for explaining processes, functions, and formulas. When moving from shapes to solids, students should be familiar with the terminology to describe them and the differences between the two. In this activity, students will create a visual vocabulary board for key geometry terms.
