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.
