Name of Strategy
Vocabulary: General Vocabulary
Description
In my pre-calculus class there is a bunch of vocabulary that is very important to my students' foundational knowledge. I especially stress it in the first chapter which is supposed to be review. There are 120 key terms in that chapter. While the students could usually do the problems, their precision with the language need to be greatly enhanced. The time spent on vocabulary study is a good investment.
