The vocabulary in this pack supports the programmes of study outlined in the National Curriculum for Key Stages one and two (published in 2014).

Pupils need to be able to read and understand this vocabulary if they are to make good progress in mathematics. Having this vocabulary supported by symbols, enables them to get a clearer picture of what each word or phrase means.
