Dear Dr. Math,                      

I am a 2nd grade teacher at Searles Elem. School in Union City,
CA (New Haven Unified S.D.), and need the list of mathematical 
terms I've seen somewhere recently (I think possibly in the NCTM 
standards, but I'm not sure).  We are in the middle of our PQR 
(Program Quality Review) and one of the indicators on our 
district's pilot report card asks for a child's knowledge of 
mathematical terms at the elementary level.  I looked at the 
page of math terms here, but it does not include words like add, 
subtract, rhombus, parallelogram, etc. which is what I need at 
my instructional level.  If my memory serves me right, I think 
the list has about 1,200 words with no definitions.  If you know 
where I can find this list or if you could e-mail me the one I'm 
talking about, I would be extremely grateful!!

definitions and explanations of math terms.

Good luck!
