Math Words in Filipino

Note: This post is for Filipino readers.

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.
