Gr 4/5/6 Webinar: Financial Literacy in the Junior Grades   []

Welcome to this webinar about teaching the new Financial Literacy expectations for the junior grades of the revised mathematics curriculum. In this webinar, we take you through the lessons that have been created by Ontario educators to support Ontario educators. In developing the Financial Literacy lessons for this project, the intentional decision to use scenarios was made. Scenarios give the opportunity to have a discussion about financial choices and the inequities of access to those choices. The goal was to provide students with a chance to learn and understand the individual skills needed that impact personal financial choices and also the economic literacy needed to understand the impact of financial systems as a whole.

Gr 4/5/6 Webinar: Fractions in the Junior Grades   []

Welcome to this webinar about teaching the Number expectations for the junior grades of the revised mathematics curriculum. In this webinar, we take you through the lessons that have been created by Ontario educators to support Ontario educators. These Number lessons have a focus on developing fraction concepts and skills. These lessons benefit from the latest research about learning fractions, including an emphasis on high-yield visual representations.

Financial Literacy Grade 4 - Financial Literacy Lesson - Need or Want… What is your decision?   [Folder]

In this lesson, students will think about the factors that influence their decisions when making a purchase. Teachers can explore two scenarios (buying an article that they want and buying an article that they really need). Students will be able to make a decision and justify their choice using factors that can influence spending and saving behaviors.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 4 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Planning the School Breakfast Club   [Doc]

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.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 4 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Breakfast is served!   [Doc]

In this lesson, students continue to analyze, evaluate, and modify as necessary their mathematical model presented in Lesson 1 (Planning the School Breakfast Club). They have the opportunity to collect and interpret additional data to answer further questions, create new models, and seek practical solutions to the given situation.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 4 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Which in-game purchases are best?   [Folder]

Students will use a mathematical model to help them determine the best in-game purchases to make in a fictional video game scenario.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 4 - Number Lesson - How Many Books?   [Doc]

In this lesson, students will have the chance to compare fractions in two different fair-share scenarios. They can compare them by using drawings and models to compare them.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 4 - Number Lesson - Combining Fractions   [Doc]

In this lesson, students will count unit fractions to help them represent the relationship between repeated addition of unit fractions and multiplication of those same unit fractions by a whole number.
