      This Master’s Thesis Project focused on discovering the importance of effectively teaching vocabulary in math and how that could be presented in a professional development project. It was found, through a literature review, that many teachers were unaware of how to effectively teach vocabulary within the math curriculum. The results also revealed that the use of graphic organizers to directly teach vocabulary has a positive correlation on vocabulary knowledge. The project was created to inform teachers of the importance of teaching vocabulary in math and also how to effectively implement vocabulary instruction.
