Feedback form is now closed.
Welcome to the Science of teaching Math… attending to the learner’s developmental state, considering the nature of the content to be learned, and carefully selecting the activities and ideas to help students acquire, consolidate, and refine their understandings… welcome to Mathology! Pearson Canada’s new, comprehensive, and simple math solution for K-9 enables teachers to easily plan and implement meaningful, differentiated math learning experiences for all students, while increasing teachers’ skills as math educators. Rooted in best practices from academic research and real classrooms, and based on a math learning progression, Mathology offers a wide variety of student and teacher resources in print and digital media. It also provides targeted professional learning to allow educators to become better at knowing where students are at and defining next steps for growth. Built on a robust research base, co-created with teachers, and organized around a Made-in-Canada Learning Progression, Mathology unites the resources, pedagogy, and assessment with what we know about best practices in Teaching and Learning. This session will explore how you can use Mathology to: -Create positive student experiences through engaging activities and lessons -Use tools to support student assessment, lesson planning, and differentiated instruction -Use technology, manipulatives, story, and visualization to bring math to life! We believe that establishing a solid foundation for math in the early years is fundamental… Mathology’s goal for K-3 is to empower students and teachers to grow in their mathematical capabilities, gain confidence, and cultivate an affinity for math. Participants will receive sample kits of Pearson’s K-3 Mathology Activities
