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

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.

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.

Coding Grade 6 - Coding Lesson - Part 1: Which Integer is Greater?   [Folder]

Creating a pseudocode for the actions to determine which integer is greater than another, students then identify the Scratch coding blocks that will carry out these actions. They can remix a sample Scratch project or programme their own from a starter Scratch project. The use of a number line in the coding projects gives a visual representation to the integers. Note: For teachers not familiar with Scratch coding, instructions are included to assist your teaching of these lessons.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Coding Grade 6 - Coding Lesson - Part 2: Mystery Integers!   [Folder]

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Coding Grade 6 - Coding Lesson - Coding and Composite Numbers   [Folder]

Through the use of pseudocode, students will be learning to decompose their mathematical thinking regarding the concepts of prime and composite numbers and algorithms; identify the factors of composite numbers as a series of actions; connect those actions to block coding, and in doing so, reinforce their computational thinking. Note: Consider using coding lesson after the students understand the concept of factoring. For teachers not familiar with Scratch coding, instructions are included to assist your teaching of these lessons.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Financial Literacy Grade 6 - Financial Literacy Lesson - In the Interest of Saving!   [Folder]

Students will then continue working towards the lesson learning goals using a project-based approach--preparing and presenting a convincing argument for how they will be able to reach their fundraising goal.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 6 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Free Little Library   [Folder]

In this lesson, students find themselves in a messy, real-world problem. A free little library has been donated to the school. “What books are needed to continue to make the little library successful?” Students will make their own choices, assumptions and decisions as they develop a rating system to predict the likelihood a donated book will be read. Suggestions to extend the activity beyond the process of mathematical modelling to what is required to manage a real little library in the school are part of the further consolidation and next steps.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 6 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - It Pays to Save! Power Up Through Mathematical Modelling   [Folder]

In this 2-part lesson, students will engage in the process of mathematical modelling to produce a model that helps consumers understand their electricity consumption habits and/or which pricing model--Time-of-use or Tiered--is best in meeting their needs.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 6 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - School Garden   [Folder]

In this lesson, students examine the idea of making a school garden. We live in a vast and varied province. Students develop a model to predict the likelihood of success for a variety of garden plans. The model would be used by others, for example, a parent group, when deciding the winning student-designed garden. Additional activities include information to create a garden and the study of Sustainable Development Goals in Social Studies.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 6 - Number Lesson - It All Adds Up! Linear Models for Fraction Sums   [Folder]

Students will use visual and concrete models, including number lines, to further develop their reasoning about how fractions can be combined through addition.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 6 - Number Lesson - All Tied Up About Fractions   [Folder]

In this lesson, students will use concrete manipulatives, online apps, and simulations to examine fraction relationships. The Active Learning component centres on situations about the manufacturing process of shoelace making. Further lesson consolidation includes visual art ideas for patterns and tessellations.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 6 - Number Lesson - It's Going to be a Banner Day!   [Folder]

In this lesson, students will be learning to multiply and divide proper fractions by whole numbers by calculating the amount of fabric used during the creation of class banners.
