The concept of communication is a polyphonic concept that is in the junction point of most disciplines. The communication is evaluated as a process in the concept descriptions within the communication theory. in the communication process that brings the mutual interaction forward basically, it is thought that there are personal differences in terms of transferring emotion, thoughts and information and of reaching them to individuals. In this study that was a part of a more extensive study that mathematics communication process were analyzed in different dimensions, the interactions in learning environment based on teacher-student interaction were handled and scrutinized within communication process. The interaction in question was evaluated by "Shannon-Weaver Model" in terms of the perspective of teacher, student and subject. In the study done by case study within qualitative paradigm, the communication of 9th grade students consisting the study group in mathematics courses was observed within the scope of process evaluation. After investigating the written records students kept during the courses, document analysis was performed. The data obtained were evaluated by doing descriptive analysis. It was observed that after solving problems with students in a verbal communication way-the student misused mathematical terminology. The mathematical language used in these courses stirred an incoherent jungle of symbols for students
