I just don't understand??
by vinbrowne15 Junior Cert Mathematics — 12/05/16 9

The reason I find higher level maths so hard is because the words they use are very hard to understand, i'm able to speak perfect English, I just cant get the hang of the words used in maths. Does anyone have any notes on these type of words used in maths, eg,(Translation)??

no sorry but my advice is to look over the exam papers and ask questions to your maths teacher

I'd say to keep doing papers to see what comes up frequently, then ask your teacher what those words mean

Most of the time there are trigger words in a question such as solve,explain,show,find and calculate. If you know what is asked of you whe. These words are mentioned you should be ok

all im sure of is that 'find the sum' means that you add. 'solve' means multiply.

No Solve means find the value of the variable

Hence = using your answer from the previous question you answered. Evaluate = find the value of.... Construct = Using instruments such as ruler or protractor. Round = Rounding means converting a real number into an integer (whole number). 1.302 rounded to a full number is 1. Graph = Construct your lines or coordinates etc onto a graph. Prove = Proof with reason on the Geometry Theorem. Verify = Show the statement is true. ^ Some vocabulary I found through the papers for you.
