When it is taken into account that educational environments include communication processes between teachers and students, the existence of mathematical communication processes in math classes can also be mentioned. In this communication process, mathematic is considered as a lingua franca which ensure mutual understanding and using mathematical sentences - setting up a model, making a logical inferences, using mathematical symbols and abstraction are behaviors being expected from communicators. In this study, which is a part of a larger-scale study, it is discussed whether functional communication model can be obtained by deeply analyzing the communication between teacher and student in mathematics education process. This study is conducted by 9th grade students from two branches and two mathematics teachers, teachers' ways of using the language of mathematics have been compared by observing the mathematical communication processes during teaching the triangles. Content analysis has been made to observation data. It has been seen that mathematical communication process has a dynamic pattern. More than one factor affecting the process emerged. Therefore, it is concluded that mathematical communication is a process which must be handled multidimensional and functional model emerged.
