The Common Curriculum Framework for K-12 Mathematics: Western Canadian Protocol for Collaboration in Basic Education.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
This document provides a common base for the K-9 (grades 10-12 are still under development) mathematics curriculum expectations mandated by the western Canadian provinces and territories of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon Territory, and the Northwest Territories. The framework identifies beliefs about mathematics, general and specific student outcomes, and illustrative examples agreed upon by these six jurisdictions. The following aspects are discussed: (1) mathematical processes based on the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: communication, connections, estimation and mental mathematics, problem solving, reasoning, technology, and visualization; (2) nature of mathematics: change, constancy, dimension, number, pattern, quantity, relationships, shape, and uncertainty; (3) strands: number, patterns and relations, shape and space, and statistics and probability; and (4) student expectations. The majority of the document contains general outcomes and specific outcomes with illustrative examples for each grade from kindergarten through grade 9. (MKR)
