The Best Online Math Dictionary for Kids

My friend and fellow educator, Jeri, shared with me a super find – A Maths Dictionary for Kids by Jenny Eather.

I have a lot of math dictionaries, and have seen many online. Generally they all do the same thing – give definitions.

But A Maths Dictionary for Kids does something more than all the others – it gives kids a chance to experience the words.

After playing around with it a bit, I’ve decided that it’s the best online math dictionary I’ve ever seen – even better than Wolfram’s MathWorld!

It’s not just for kids!

Yes, it’s colorful, interactive and easy to use. But that doesn’t mean you have to be a little one to appreciate it.

As a grownup you’ll also enjoy A Maths Dictionary for Kids. Head over there now and pick some terms to play with. Here are some good ones to start with:

  • Absolute value
  • Attribute (shown in the video)
  • Centre of rotation
  • MPH
  • Terminating decimal
  • Three-dimentional
  • y-coordinate

Print it out and use it!

If you do something cool you can print it out and use it as a handout.

What do you think? Can you use it?
