We teach mathematics in English in my country, so we are not familiar about math terms in our own language. Honestly, I didn’t know that these terms even exist. So, I want to share it with fellow Filipino teachers and math enthusiasts.

You might also want to check more math terms in Tagalog.

Enjoy!
