Ontario is dedicating more than $60 million to help support students across the province achieve better results in mathematics.
Math is a critical requirement for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Starting next September, key elements of the renewed strategy will be introduced including:
: A minimum of 60 minutes each day of protected learning time for effective mathematics instruction and assessment for students in Grades 1 to 8
: Up to three math lead teachers in all elementary schools
: Coaching for principals of select secondary schools to lead improvement in math among their students
: Support for learning at home through parent resources that provide helpful tips and information on the mathematics curriculum
: Better access to online math resources and math supports such as Homework Help or SOS Devoirs
: Math support for Grades 6 to 9 outside of the school day
: Opportunities for educators to deepen their knowledge in math learning, teaching and leading, including a dedicated math Professional Development Day to further their school improvement efforts.
