This resource focuses on assessment practices and includes information on the types of classroom assessment; the purpose of classroom assessment; the assessment process; and assessment strategies and tools.

This resource highlights current research on learning mathematics. Topics include: mathematical proficiency; number sense; computational fluency; mathematical reasoning; mathematical conversation; metacognition; learning styles; and math anxiety.

This resource assists teachers with planning for instruction. Topics addressed include: creating an effective mathematics environment; creating meaningful activities; understanding the progression of mathematical understanding; models in the mathematics classroom; developing algebraic reasoning; integrating problem solving; using technology in the mathematics classroom; and differentiating instruction. A list of recommended resources is also provided.

This Web site provides a library of interactive, Web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction (Kindergarten to Grade 12 emphasis). The resources are organized into the following topics: Number and Operations; Algebra; Geometry; Measurement; and Data Analysis and Probability.

In this video, a teacher uses dot plates as a strategy to assist children to subitize and name familiar arrangements of 1-5 dots. Children compare quantities and express a given number in two parts using fingers and dots. The teacher reflects on the lesson and provides strategies for teaching these concepts.
