Vocabulary has always been very important in communication and in mastering the concepts of mathematics. Most students are unaware that vocabulary is important and that they need to learn it, and teachers need to teach it. As the teacher of students in a geometry class research into teaching students vocabulary has been done to find ways to improve student‟s vocabulary and understanding of mathematics. Fifty students in a geometry class participated in playing vocabulary games, which were activities to improve the student vocabulary skills. The teacher spent a lot of time teaching and reinforcing vocabulary in her classroom and found out that it was worth the time.
