Lesson

Grade 1 - Coding Lesson - Hen Runs Away From Fox   [Folder]

Hen Runs Away From Fox: Children learn to animate a character (sprite) using Scratch or a similar block coding platform so that the character moves from left to right across a computer screen.

Lesson

In this hands-on lesson, students examine the attributes of coins, play games using attributes, create their own coins, and compare the attributes of Canadian coins with students' own imagined coins in so doing, they learn to recognize and describe coins by their attributes e.g., size, shape, colour, image, and texture as well as the value of Candian coins based on their attributes.

Lesson

Grade 1 - Financial Literacy Lesson - I Love my Name   [Folder]

I love my name! In this lesson, students will use coin manipulatives to "purchase" the letters in their name in order to make a name plate for themselves. In the process, students learn to compare the value of Canadian coins.

Lesson

Grade 1 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Goody bags for a birthday party   [Folder]

In this lesson, children learn to make a mathematical model in order to predict the number of candies required for a candy bag. Major foci include determining important questions that need answering, missing information that is needed to solve the problem, and making assumptions about missing information.

Lesson

Grade 1 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - What should we buy for the dollhouse?   [Folder]

In this lesson, Grade One students develop a mathematical model to try to predict which new dollhouse furniture would most appeal to kindergarten students before it is purchased.

Lesson

Grade 1 - Number Lesson - Dancing on Fractions   [Folder]

In this lesson, students learn to divide different shapes and objects into equal parts to share, use math language like halves and fourths to describe equal parts, and understand that more equal shares creates smaller shares.

Lesson

Grade 1 - Number Lesson - Class Visit to the Zoo   [Folder]

The class is going on an imaginary visit to the zoo. During the visit, the class is going to feed some of the animals. The class has a limited budget so they can only buy a limited amount of snacks. They can only feed 2 giraffes, 4 lions, 2 chimpanzees, 4 zebras and 2 elephants. Students work in pairs or small groups to decide how to share food fairly among each type of animal making sure to respect the snack preferences of the animals.

Lesson

Grade 1 - Number Lesson - Feeding Bears at the Zoo   [Folder]

The students use their imagination to pretend that they are going to the zoo for a day to work with the zookeepers as assistants. One of their jobs is to divide a specific amount of food equally among the 2 polar bears. They also have to divide the same amounts among 4 grizzly bears and among 10 black bears.

Lesson

Grade 1 - Number Lesson - Building Animal Spaces at the Zoo   [Folder]

In this lesson, students imagine that a zoo is bringing in some new animals and that they are in charge of designing and building new enclosures for them. The challenge is that there is limited space. Students use their knowledge of fractions ot design the new enclosures.

Webinar: Course Planning   [MOV]

This webinar will introduce Ontario educators to three (3) course plans, each of which outlines a different way a teacher could structure the 2021 Grade 9 math course. These course plans have been shared on our OntarioMath.support website. Each course plan includes all of the curriculum expectations, providing suggestions as to how to group expectations to present mathematics in Grade 9 as a connected whole. In addition to providing ways to structure the course, each plan offers ideas for questions and tasks that will engage students with the mathematics they are learning. In this webinar, we will also outline the underlying principles upon which all three course plans have been designed to provide support for teachers as they implement a de-streamed grade 9 curriculum.

Webinar: Strand A - Mathematical Thinking and Making Connections through Coding   [MOV]

“In Grade 9, students transition to using coding as a tool to interact with the mathematics they are learning. They use the skills developed in elementary to create and alter code in a multitude of coding environments including text-based programming languages, spreadsheets, computer algebra systems (CAS), and virtual graphing and geometry tools.” (2021 MTH1W) What do students know about coding coming into Grade 9? How am I supposed to teach coding as well as all the other math expectations? How can I support students when I don’t know how to code? If you’ve asked yourself some of these questions, come to this webinar to explore some answers.

Webinar: Data Literacy Across the Strands   [MOV]

Students in Ontario are navigating a complex world driven by data. Our world is evolving and new fields and careers are emerging that require individuals with high levels of data literacy. Supporting students as they develop critical data literacy skills is an essential component of the new de-streamed Grade 9 curriculum. Data literacy is different from data management. Certainly, data management skills are important to analyse data. As part of the revised elementary mathematics curriculum in 2020, students have been building their data management skills. How do we connect these with the larger goal of achieving data literacy? What are the competencies necessary for data literacy, and how will we continue to build these competencies to ensure that all students leave our schools as data literate young adults? In this webinar, we will talk more about these competencies, and we will share strategies for integrating data literacy into the teaching of each of the math strands.
