Gr 7/8 Webinar: Financial Literacy in the Intermediate Grades   [MOV]

Welcome to this webinar about teaching the new Financial Literacy expectations for the intermediate 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.

Coding Grade 7 - Coding Lesson - Get the Wolf to her Pups   [Folder]

In this unplugged coding lesson, students use computational thinking to move an object (the Wolf) in a cartesian plane using rotations and translations. The ultimate goal is to move the wolf so that she can join her pups. Student begin by writing instructions (code) to move the wolf freely without any obstacles, followed by adapting their code in order to avoid rivers and pits.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Coding Grade 7 - Coding Lesson - Restaurant Order app   [Folder]

A lesson in which students get to create a prototype for a restaurant ordering app. Using different conditional and operations blocs in Scratch, students get to work on expectations in the Numbers strand and calculate the total cost of a meal. Various scenarios (with different items and different quantities) allow for differentiation and various levels of scaffolding.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Coding Grade 7 - Coding Lesson - $ 20 or 20%?   [Folder]

In this coding lesson using Scratch, students can create a calculator in which they can compare two different discount structures. Depending on the number of items bought, the calculator will be able to provide savings from either choosing a 20% discount, or a $ 20 discount. Students get to utilise conditions and operations blocs in this activity.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Coding Grade 7 - Coding Lesson - Draw a maze   [Folder]

By the ways of math history and the beauty of math, students discover how math is useful in everyday life, including gaming! Students get to use Scratch to code a sequence to move an avatar through a maze. By gamifying the process, students are working on their understanding of translations, rotations, angles and distance. We are also asking them to think about the sequence of instructions (code) needed to move the avatar from point A to point B.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 7 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Handwashing Policy   [Folder]

In this lessons students will create a model then collect and organize data in order to determine the impact of a school board's handwashing policy. Students will use their model to make predictions, then test those predictions by playing out the handwashing scenario in real-life. In the end, students will present their opinion on the policy, using mathematical arguements based on information provided by their models.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 7 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Forests in Crisis   [Doc]

In this lesson, students will apply the process of mathematical modelling to analyse data about the current rates of deforestation in Canada. Students will create a model that can be used to predict the point at which we will no longer have enough forestry products to meet our needs.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Mathematical Modelling Grade 7 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Top 10 Players   [Doc]

In this lesson, students will create a model, then collect and organize data in order to predict the 10 best pro-athletes in a given sport. Students will use their model to make and test predictions about which hockey players should be chosen for a fantasy hockey league.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 7 - Number Lesson - Palace Pizza Catering Company   [Folder]

In this lesson, students work with a fictional pizza recipe to multiply and divide fractions by whole numbers and fractions. Students will then use their understanding of multiplying and dividing fractions by fractions in order to create and solve their own problems.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 7 - Number Lesson - Choosing Operations   [Folder]

In this lesson, students work together to visually represent and solve a variety of problems involving fractions. Students will develop a deeper understanding of when and why they should use addition, subtraction, multiplication and division when working with fractions.

Lesson
 
 
 
 
Number Grade 7 - Number Lesson - Zoo Visit   [Folder]

In this lesson, students use fractions based on minutes in an hour to create a schedule for visiting the zoo. Several scenarios will allow them to work on operations with fractions, equivalent fractions and mixed numbers.
