## Mathematics

### Overview

Students will explore mathematical concepts through the use of Communication, Connections, Mental Mathematics and Estimation, Problem Solving, Reasoning, Technology, and Visualization.

### Number Sense

Students will learn how to use and understand numbers and connect them to real-life experiences (ie. knowing relative values of numbers, how to use numbers to make judgements, how to use numbers in flexible ways when adding and subtracting, how to develop useful strategies when counting, measuring or estimating).

### Patterns and Relations

Students will learn how to reproduce, describe, extend and create repeating patterns using a variety of manipulatives, sounds and actions.
Students will develop an understanding of equality as a balance and inequality as an imbalance (ie. 10+8 and 11+7 are both equivalent representations of 18)

### Shape and Space

Students will learn that objects and shapes can be sorted by similarities. Geometric shapes can be described and compared using their attributes. A 3D object can be analyzed in terms of its 2D parts.
Students will learn that measurement is a process of comparing objects (ie. longest/shortest, heaviest/lightest).
Math is assessed by: Oral and Written Informal Assessment, Observation, Group Work, Participation
