**Strand:** Number

**Outcome:** 7

## Step 2: Determine Evidence of Student Learning

### Guiding Questions

- What evidence will I look for to know that learning has occurred?
- What should students demonstrate to show their understanding of the mathematical concepts, skills and Big Ideas?

### Using Achievement Indicators

As you begin planning lessons and learning activities, keep in mind ongoing ways to monitor and assess student learning. One starting point for this planning is to consider the achievement indicators listed in the *Mathematics Kindergarten to Grade 9 Program of Studies with Achievement Indicators*. You may also generate your own indicators and use them to guide your observation of the students.

The following indicators may be used to determine whether or not students have met this specific outcome. Can students:

- identify the operation required to solve a given problem involving integers?
- provide a context that requires multiplying two integers?
- provide a context that requires dividing two integers?
- model the process of multiplying two integers using concrete materials or pictorial representations and record the process?
- model the process of dividing an integer by an integer using concrete materials or pictorial representations and record the process?
- generalize and apply a rule for determining the sign of the product and quotient of integers?
- solve a given problem involving the multiplication of integers (2-digit by 1-digit) without the use of technology?
- solve a given problem involving the division of integers (2-digit by 2-digit) with the use of technology?
- solve a given problem involving integers, taking into consideration order of operations?

Sample behaviours to look for related to these indicators are suggested for some of the activities found in **Step 3, Section C, Choosing Learning Activities**.
