Coding Grade 6 - Coding Lesson - Getting Ready to Code Transformations - Unplugged!

In an unplugged environment, students will be learning to understand the movement of objects on the Cartesian plane through the graphing of ordered pairs (x, y) and using combinations of translations and reflections to transform objects. This lesson can be used in advance of Lesson 1, "Coding Transformations - Unplugged!"

Coding Grade 6 - Coding Lesson - Which Integer is Greater?

Creating a pseudocode for the actions to determine which integer is greater than another, students then identify the Scratch coding blocks that will carry out these actions. They can remix a sample Scratch project or programme their own from a starter Scratch project. The use of a number line in the coding projects gives a visual representation to the integers. Note: For teachers not familiar with Scratch coding, instructions are included to assist your teaching of these lessons.

Coding Grade 6 - Coding Lesson - Mystery Integers!

Creating a pseudocode for the actions to determine the actions used when using an "input/output machine" students then identify the Scratch coding blocks that will carry out these actions. They can remix a sample Scratch project or programme their own from a starter Scratch project. This lesson and Which is Greater? focus on developing your students' understanding of positive and negative integers. Note: For teachers not familiar with Scratch coding, instructions are included to assist your teaching of these lessons.

Coding Grade 6 - Coding Lesson - Coding and Composite Numbers

Through the use of pseudocode, students will be learning to decompose their mathematical thinking regarding the concepts of prime and composite numbers and algorithms; identify the factors of composite numbers as a series of actions; connect those actions to block coding, and in doing so, reinforce their computational thinking. Note: Consider using coding lesson after the students understand the concept of factoring. For teachers not familiar with Scratch coding, instructions are included to assist your teaching of these lessons.

Webinar 1 Webinar 1 - Vision, Goals, and Strands

This hour-long webinar will outline the vision, goals and strands of the revised Ontario Elementary Mathematics Curriculum. In this webinar, we will unpack these very important sections of the Curriculum Context of the revised curriculum, providing educators with an introduction as to how this "front matter" has expanded and what these changes mean to educators as they plan their math programs. We will also give an overview of the changes in the curriculum, particularly as they relate to the strands.

Also available:
 *  the slides for this presentation, in Google Slides format.
 * links and resources document, "Resources for Curriculum Context Webinar 1" , comprising links to research, videos, audio, and websites which may be of use to you as you continue to explore the Vision, Goals, and Strands in the Revised Elementary Math Curriculum (2020). [Google Doc]
