Math Word Search Puzzles Strengthen Math Vocabulary!

Word search puzzles can help with spelling and concept retention, especially when as new math topics are introduced at various grade levels.

Math isn't always just about numbers, and sometimes learning the vocabulary of a math topic is as important as the mechanics of solving problems. Solving word problems is another great example of where knowing WHAT you're doing is often more important than knowing HOW to do it.

These word search puzzles can help bridge some of this knowledge gap. By forcing students to think about just the terms, they can develop more familiarity with the meaning (and the spelling!) of concepts to which they haven't been exposed regularly.

For many math subjects, including basic geometry, knowing the vocabulary is often a big part of the math itself. If you are working on learning identifying polygons, types of angles or parts of a circle, this vocabulary knowledge is often the end goal. In those situations, these math word search puzzles will be a great adjunct to traditional vocubalary drills or flash cards to build comfort with new ideas or concepts.
