List Content

Math Unit 6 List 1

  • Line Segment -- Part of a line between two points
  • Perpendicular -- Line Segments that intersect (cross) at an angle of 90°
  • Ray -- A line with one end point that goes on forever
  • Parallel Line -- Line segments that never intersect (they are always the same distance apart)
  • Line -- Connects two points via the shortest path and continues forever in both directions
  • Intersecting -- Line segments that cross

Math Unit 6 List 2

  • Right Angle -- An angle that measures 90° You can place a box in the square corner!
  • Right Triangle -- A triangle with one right angle
  • Triangle -- A 3-sided polygon
  • Vertex -- Point at which two line segments intersect (forming an angle)
  • Equilateral Tri -- A triangle with three equal length sides and three equal angles

Math Unit 6 List 3

  • Rectangle -- A 4-sided polygon with all right angles.
  • Regular Polygon -- A polygon with all sides the same length
  • Rhombus -- A 4 sided polygon with only two parallel sides
  • Polygon -- A closed figure made of line segments each of which intersects with exactly two other line segments.
  • Square -- A quadrilateral having all sides equal in length and forming right angles.
  • Parallelogram -- 4-sided polygon with two pairs of parallel sides.
  • Quadrilateral -- Any 4-sided polygon

Math Unit 6 List 4

  • Lineof Symmetry -- A line that can be drawn in a 2-shape to make two equal halves. Some shapes have more than one line of symmetry.
  • Edge -- The place where two faces meet
  • Symmetry -- To have two equal and exact halves to a shape.
  • Face -- The flat surface of a 3D shape
  • Apex -- The point of a cone or pyramid
  • Congruence -- Two shapes that are the same shape and size
  • Base -- The top and bottom faces of a 3D shape

Math Unit 7

  • estimate -- an answer close to, or approximating, an exact answer
  • parentheses -- ( ) grouping symbols used to indicate which parts of an expression should be done first
  • extended facts -- using basic facts to solve problems with larger numbers. For example if 9 x 5 = 45 then 9 x 50 = 450
  • factor -- a counting number whose product with some other counting number equals n. For example, 2 and 3 are factors of 6 because 2 x 3 =6
  • square product -- the product of a factor and itself. For example, 49 is the square product because 49 = 7 x 7
  • congruent -- figures having the same size and same shape
  • product -- the result of multiplying two numbers, called factors. For example in 4 x 3 =12 the product is 12

Math Unit 8

  • denominator -- the bottom number of the fraction, the number of equal parts into which the whole has been divided
  • mixed numbers -- a number that is written using both a whole number and a fraction, for example 2 ½
  • unit fraction -- a fraction whose numerator is one, for example ½ , ¼
  • equivalent frac -- fractions with different denominators that name the same number, for example ½ is equivalent to
  • random draw -- taking an object from a set of objects in which each object has an equally likely chance of being drawn
  • equal -- the same
  • numerator -- the top number of the fraction, that shows how many parts of a whole that are being identified
  • whole -- (the one) the entire object, collection of objects, amount being considered

Unit 3 Math

  • perimeter -- the distance around or outside the boundary of a two dimensional figure

  • circumference -- the distance around a circle; its perimeter
  • inch -- a U.S customary unit of length equivalent to 1/12 of a foot

Unit 4 Math

  • square number -- The product of a number multiplied by itself
  • factor -- Each of the two or more numbers that when multiplied together create a product
  • dividend -- The biggest number in a division problem. It is the number that is being divided
  • remainder -- An amount left over when one number is divided by another number
  • array -- A group of objects placed in rows and columns
  • equal groups -- Groups with no remainders
  • quotient -- The answer in a division problem
