To support the teaching and learning of mathematics, the Peel District School Board has developed EngageMath, a three-year comprehensive numeracy strategy to help us improve numeracy instruction in Peel classrooms. The strategy is intended to guide the major focus of our work over the next few years. It is built on three foundational drivers: instructional focus, instructional strategies and assessment practices.
While the strategy plans out certain actions, it is by no means a magic bullet to answering the questions and challenges surrounding numeracy and student achievement. Mathematics success for all our students will require a strong partnership between home and school. That's why we're committed to providing you with the parent resources you need to help us boost math achievement in Peel. In addition to board-provided resources, you can always speak with your child's teacher(s) about ways you can help at home.
Here are a few math tip sheets and online resources to help you support your child or teen's numeracy success:
