Mathematics in the Philippines is taught in English, and I have never used a math term in Filipino (our national language) before. I found these translations, and I am delighted to share it to fellow Filipino math teachers and enthusiasts. Honestly, I only know one translation, and it is embarrassing that I didn’t even know the other translations exist.

- math –
**sipnayan** - mathematician –
**sipnayanon** - arithmetic –
**palatuusan** - radical –
**pangugat** - exponential function –
**pangunahing kabisa** - square root –
**pariugat** - cube root –
