The following resources are useful dictionaries and other useful reference material for Mathematics students. **See Jenny Eather’s dictionary for example **and note the section on **charts**. Also very useful is this **glossary for teachers**. It’s really good for students too as it defines vocabulary used in Mathematics from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4 (Ages 6-16). **Note the KS1 – KS3 new edition from NCETM**. For the terminology used in question papers see this document: **maths exam terminology (**I have seen this document around the web, I believe the original is from AQA).

Try the excellent credit card size information sheet full of **mathematical formulae from Loughborough University**. This is also available as a** free app** for your mobile phone.

From New Zealand Maths, check this very comprehensive **glossary of mathematical terms**.

For older students perhaps try **Wolfram MathWorld**. Note that that is possible to obtain a definition from WolframAlpha – for example try **complex number **for various examples with complex numbers and note that you can choose to look at the **mathematical definition **also.

Look up the definition of domain on WolframAlpha

Or perhaps try the **Mathisfun dictionary.**

I’m glad it’s helpful Clara. I know lots of students and teachers like Jenny Eather’s dictionary for example.

Very useful for students Colleen. Please visit my blog http://mathematicsbhilai.blogspot.com/ . I am also using it for students.

Hi Sanjay – it’s good to see teachers writing for their students!
