Math Dictionary for Kids: The Essential Guide to Math Terms, Strategies, and Tables
by Theresa R. Fitzgerald
Prufrock Press, 2006. 131 pages. Nonfiction.

Just in time for light summer reading comes the Math Dictionary for Kids! Seriously, this is an extremely informative and clear resource for brushing up on math skills, or for clarifying an unfamiliar mathematical concept. This book is organized by the different areas taught in elementary and junior high schools. Each section concisely defines common terms used in that area of study, and includes many examples and illustrations. There is also a quick reference guide for commonly used equations, and tables of commonly used facts and equivalencies. Keep this book in mind the next time you have to create a stem and leaf plot or inscribe an angle and just can't quite remember how.
