Undergraduate international students studying the sciences at universities need to gain a command of fundamental specialized terms equivalent to the high school graduate level. This study attempted to identify a list of vocabulary that should be learned in order to gain a command of fundamental mathematics terms in an efficient manner. The study drew on indexes of terms from 90 junior and senior high school textbooks in four mathematics-related subjects, and identified 328 target terms listed in 50% or more of the indexes for each individual subject. These accounted for approximately 32% of all terms.
