Why Math Now is Your Best Choice

Every lesson follows consistent organization:

  • Prepare students cognitively for the main lesson task.

  • Collaboratively solve problems that require applying the concepts and skills of the lesson.

  • Consolidate ideas and understanding, and express mathematical thinking to peers.

  • Students reflect on their learning and build confidence, proficiency and fluency in mathematics.

Discussion prompts that generate higher-order thinking are used to facilitate learning throughout the Resource.

Sample probing questions are purposefully prepared to engage students in meaningful discussions.

Practising Fundamentals questions are part of each lesson, with printable versions also included.

Teachers have access to all the materials across Grades 1 to 8. This eases teaching of combined grades and, with just a convenient click, teachers can refer to a lesson where a concept or skill was previously taught—no need for a whole new search or hunting through a textbook, or delaying students’ getting the support they need to review or learn a concept.
