Communicating mathematically is a complex task for even the most mathematically advanced student. The ability to effectively communicate (expressively and receptively) through the language of mathematics requires mathematical understanding; a robust vocabulary knowledge base; flexibility; fluency and proficiency with numbers, symbols, words, and diagrams; and
comprehension skills. Many students struggle with some or all of the important mathematical concepts, especially students with learning disabilities (Morin & Franks, 2010).

Every day in their mathematics classrooms, students encounter a text-centered instructional setting that creates unintended barriers to their learning (Anderson-Inman & Horney, 1998). It is important to recognize the many and varied difficulties that present challenges for students; finding instructional strategies and activities to help students overcome these difficulties is imperative.

A common belief with many teachers is that simply exposing students to new vocabulary words through rich context-specific interactions is the best way to teach vocabulary, many students will require more systematic and explicit instructional techniques and purposeful instructional activities to facilitate their learning (Marzano, 2004)
