  Term (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In elementary mathematics, a term is either a single number or variable, or the product of several numbers and/or variables.
Often term is used of a monomial with a coefficient: to 'collect like terms' in a polynomial is the basic operation of making it a linear combination of distinct monomials.
The word "term" is from the Latin terminus "boundary line, limit", from the Indo-European root ter- "peg, post, boundary".

 Bates College: The College Catalog: Mathematics and Computer Science
Mathematics today is a dynamic and ever-changing subject, and an important part of a liberal-arts education.
Mathematical skills such as data analysis, problem solving, and abstract reasoning are increasingly vital to science, technology, and society itself.
Both courses are recommended for math majors with an interest in applied mathematics and for students in other disciplines, such as psychology and economics, who wish to learn about some of the mathematical theory underlying the methodology used in their fields.

 Ancient India - Mathematics - Crystalinks
Thus Indians could take their mathematical concepts to an abstract plane and with the aid of a simple numerical notation devise a rudimentary algebra as against the Greeks or the ancient Egyptians who due to their concern with the immediate measurement of physical objects remained confined to Mensuration and Geometry.
In ancient India the terms used to describe zero included Pujyam, Shunyam, Bindu the concept of a void or blank was termed as Shukla and Shubra.
Thus it is evident that the term Cipher is derived from the Arabic Sifr which in turn is quite close to the Sanskrit term Shubra.

 NAEP - Long-Term Trend: What Mathematics Measures
NAEP has assessed the mathematics achievement of  9-, 13-, and 17-year-olds ten times: in the school years ending in 1973, 1978, 1982, 1986, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996, 1999, and 2004.
The mathematics trend assessments contained questions designed to measure performance on sets of objectives developed by nationally representative panels of mathematics specialists, educators, and other interested parties.
The objectives for each assessment prior to 1990 were based on the framework used for the previous assessment, with some revisions that reflected changes in the content of mathematics education.
