Alberta Education - Mathematics (K–6) Alberta K–9 Mathematics Achievement Indicators. Description The Alberta K–9 Mathematics Achievement Indicators has been derived from The Common Curriculum Framework for K–9 Mathematics: Western and Northern Canadian Protocol, May 2006 (the Common Curriculum Framework).

Alberta K–9 Mathematics Achievement Indicators

This document presents general and specific outcomes with corresponding achievement indicators that were established in the Common Curriculum Framework and is organized by strand within each grade. The list of indicators contained in this document is not intended to be exhaustive but rather to provide teachers with examples of evidence of understanding that may be used to determine whether or not students have achieved a given specific outcome.

Teachers may use any number of these indicators or choose to use other indicators as evidence that the desired learning has been achieved. Achievement indicators should also help teachers form a clear picture of the intent and scope of each specific outcome Tags. AB Education - Numeracy. Alberta Education defines numeracy as the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with quantitative and spatial information to make informed decisions in all aspects of daily living.

AB Education - Numeracy

A numerate individual has the confidence and awareness to know when and how to apply quantitative and spatial understandings at home, at school, at work or in the community. Quantitative information refers to information that can be measured and expressed as an amount. This includes: Alberta Education - Mathematics Additional Support Resources List.

Alberta Assessment Consortium - Supporting Mathematical Thinking in Elementary Classrooms Through Formative Assessment. Teachers in Alberta are working with instructional strategies that are designed to help students become more confident mathematicians.

Alberta Assessment Consortium - Supporting Mathematical Thinking in Elementary Classrooms Through Formative Assessment

While we want students to be fluent with calculations, we also want them to demonstrate their growing understanding of mathematics as they investigate, solve problems, reason and explain their thinking. This broader focus requires adjustments to traditional assessment practices. In this video series, watch how formative assessment can be used to support student learning. Elementary Mathematics Professional Development. "A deeper understanding of Mathematical fluency enables us to envision what it means for our students to be mathematically proficient, and to shift teaching practices that shift our teaching from a focus on content to a focus on application and understanding" Sue O'Connell and John SanGiovanni from Putting the Practices into Action The aim of this series of instructional and collaborative professional learning experiences is to provide opportunities, ideas, and a venue for teachers to work collaboratively to enhance and further develop their Professional Capital (as described by Fullan and Hargreaves, cited in A Great School for All - ATA, 2012).
