Welcome to this webinar about coding in the mathematics curriculum. We will be taking you through the pedagogy and social emotional learning skills that coding brings to your classroom as well as the lessons that have been created as supports for Ontario teachers in the primary grades.

This document, prepared by the Ontario Ministry of Education, compares in table form the key changes between the 2005 and the 2020 elementary mathematics curriculum.

This curriculum policy replaces The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 1-8: Mathematics, 2005. Beginning in September 2020, all mathematics programs for Grades 1 to 8 will be based on the expectations outlined in this curriculum policy.

In this lesson students will have to write unplugged codes using a sequence of actions on a 100's carpet or 10 x 10 grid to pick up enough coins that equal 75¢ to buy a marker.

In this lesson, the students will create and perform a set of dances in a chosen sequence containing precise unplugged instructions for performing the dances.

In this lesson, students use coding devices to do plugged sequential coding to create number sentences while using a 100's chart.

In this lesson, students will read a story and help the squirrel to find, share and store acorns in the forest, and to problem solve using coding skills.

In this lesson, students will calculate amounts of up to $100 for recess equipment.

In this lesson, students will find several ways to represent $ 200 in order to decide what currency they would like to receive from the city for their recycling materials.

In this lesson, students will work on the 2 first components of the math modeling process. They will determine how to organize the math manipulatives area for a grade 2 classroom.

In this lesson, students learn to understand the first 2 components of mathematical modeling. They develop a spatial plan for the grade 2 event in the schoolyard.

Split, the squirrel, shares his seeds - in this lesson, students learn to create equivalent sharing situations of one-third and two-sixths between 3 squirrels.

In this lesson, Wooly has her Grandma knit sweaters with different combinations of coloured stripes on sweaters to represent one half, two-fourths, one third and two-sixths (surface model). She then knits her scarves with pompoms having the same fraction quantities as the sweaters (set model). The equivalent fractions are then compared for each model. Students represent all of these fractions with different manipulatives. The photos from the centers can then be used for different card games.

In this lesson, students represent multiplication as repeated addition of equal groups, including groups of one-half and one-fourth, and determine the amound of clay needed to buy for the class to create art. They use various tools and drawings to solve the problem.

In this lesson, students represent and solve problems of equitably sharing a whole of up to 10 dried fish among a number of people. The results are mixed numbers. Links to aboriginal activities are presented as a context.

A bilingual compilation of pertinent vocabulary directly related to computational thinking and computer programming/coding.

A continuum from Grades 1-8 outlining the key coding concepts per grade coupled with a Scratch project with teacher notes.

A summary of Virtual Manipulatives for Fractions that are available, including links, and considerations for their usage.

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.

This hour-long webinar will focus on program planning for the revised Elementary Mathematics Curriculum. In this webinar, we will explore the contents of the Program Planning section of the “Curriculum Context”, and provide educators with an introduction to what these changes mean to educators as they plan their math programs.

This hour-long webinar will focus on Mathematical Modelling. In this webinar, we will explore in detail what the mathematical modelling process looks like and how it is truly new to the curriculum. We hope to deepen educators’ understanding of what Mathematical Modelling is and how it can be woven into a math program. Sample tasks will be discussed.
