6th Grade Math Word Wall

Transform Your Bulletin Board into a 6th Grade Math Vocabulary Focus Wall

Are you looking for a way to support your 6th grade math students? In this post are just some of the visual 6th grade math vocabulary references included in a 6th grade math word wall. The math word wall has grown a lot over the years as I have added teacher requests, and now includes a printable color version, a printable black & white version, an interactive digital version in Google Slides, and printable Spanish vocabulary.

There's a lot more in this math vocabulary word wall for 6th grade than shown in this post. I wanted to highlight just a few of the many references.

Here's part of the 6th grade math word wall's data section showing mean, median, mode, range, mean absolute deviation, box plot, quartiles, interquartile range, dot plot, histogram and bar graph. 

Skew math focus wall reference

Skew was a more recent teacher request. Here you can see the vocabulary right skew, left skew, no skew.

Nets were another teacher request. Here you can see the vocabulary references and nets for cube, triangular pyramid, right square pyramid, cylinder, rectangular prism, and triangular prism. I also hand-colored the b&w versions of these. They are also included in color if you have a color printer.
