For making your own vocabulary posters, using a word cloud generator such as Word It Out makes the job easy. Simply enter some text and create your word cloud. You can then share your cloud if you want to. It is also possible to embed it on your blog or website.
Note that you can use the tilde (~) character to keep words together.
A great feature for mathematicians – WordItOut can easily cope with the equals sign, division signs also – see for example this equation. It seems other symbols are possible also.
Various options are available, you can change the colours of your words and the background colour, you can also change the size of the font and the variation in size allowed.
Tagxedo is another possibility, this also allows a choice of shape.
For a collection of Numeracy Across the Curriculum posters, have a look at this collection which includes posters on Numeracy for a variety of subjects.I came across these on Twitter; looking at the address, thank you to Inveralmond Community High School.
