Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Standards Branch.
This booklet provides information to parents, students, teachers, and community members about the new mathematics curriculum in western Canada that was developed as a result of the Common Curriculum Framework for K-12 Mathematics. The curriculum represents a dynamic approach to mathematics with problem solving as the main focus for all grade levels, and is the basis for mathematics programs of study in Alberta. This booklet describes some of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes students are expected to learn; some ways parents and other adults can support student learning in mathematics; the goals of classroom instruction and the broad content areas in the curriculum; bridges and connections and how they are built; problem solving techniques; new instructional strategies; and a picture of a modern mathematics lesson.
