Emerging Themes – Content

What was said?

It emerged that mathematical content knowledge and curriculum knowledge are key focuses for schools and DSBs, particularly the fundamental mathematics skills, as well as the mathematical process of problem-solving.

One key challenge that emerged for educators was learning more about “insight into children’s mathematical development”1 and the corresponding development of a scope and sequence framework for mathematics curriculum delivery across the grades.

This suggests that supporting educators with student learning progressions/trajectories in mathematics is a valuable key focus for building further content and curriculum knowledge.


Addressing the Challenges

Ministry resources to support educators with mathematics curriculum knowledge, assessment, curriculum scope and sequence, and pedagogy:
