French Math Terms

Here you will find a complete list of French math terms. You’ll find words covering several areas in math including problem-solving verbs (to add, subtract, etc.) as well as terms covering different kinds of shapes, solids, lines, measurements and equipment. This list of words should be very easy to learn as almost all of the terms are very similar to English as math words in both languages are derived from Latin.
