Here's a set of 50 Mathematics Taboo Cards I have created; easy to change the Key words/taboo words as needed. I print these out, laminate them and then use them in class for revision or as a starter activity to engage students. Good for literacy across the curriculum.

    This was a fun review for my students. It forced them to think and speak about math vocabulary terms, but it did not feel like boring classwork.

    It's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much for making it available. I will use it on my first lesson after the half-term break :)
