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 Junior 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.

Use coded directions to perform translations on a grid.

Use physical movements and block coding to create repeating patterns to describe translations (sequential and loops).

Introduction to coding on a Cartesian plane using ordered pairs in the first quadrant; paper grid (unplugged coding) and Scratch

Students will create a coding formula in Scratch to find the area of a rectangle so they can paint the walls of the classroom. This lesson addresses multiple expectations in Spatial Sense and Financial Literacy.

Use mathematical vocabulary to make predictions of a probability (heads or tails) and use a code (Scratch) to represent this situation.

Use estimation strategies and operations to determine the best price for bundled items by finding unit rate.

This lesson is the first of two. Students begin the first three steps of the mathematical modeling process: understanding the situation, analyzing the situation, and creating a mathematical model. From an authentic activity, students work together to come up with a simple model and collect the data. This lesson will be followed by a second lesson called Let's Serve Breakfast! where students continue the mathematical modeling process.

Create drawings to understand the meaning of the numerator and denominator in fractions written in standard notation.

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.
