Because we believe that students deserve a math program that respects their various learning styles, the Division ensured that there are many resources available to support Math instruction for grades K-12 and developed common math assessments for grades 1-9. These programs support learning math through:
Resources by Grade Level
Math Makes Sense (K-6) Pearson ; Math Focus (7-9) Nelson
Math Works (W&A Math 10/20/30) Pacific Educational Press
Foundations and Pre-Calculus Math 10 Pearson; Foundations of Math 20/30 Nelson
Pre Calculus Math20/30 McGraw Hill
Every teacher and student has access to an interactive curriculum based on-line program called Mathletics.

The numeracy portion of the NLSD113 Building a Community of Learners Initiative has four components:
1) Quality instruction for all students using the major resources Math Makes Sense for grades 1-6 and Math Focus for grades 7-9.
2) Administration of the NLSD Common Numeracy unit tests according to the data collection timeline and entering data on Pearson Inform to ensure intervention is provided to students who require extra support
3) Participation in the numeracy PLCs 6 times a year to discuss best practices and interventions
4) Design and implement learning support plans for students who require significantly altered programs in Math along with tracking their individual numeracy progress on the ISNAT spread sheet on Pearson Power School
