Math on the Farm
This article discusses some of the many ways in which math is used in agriculture. It considers specific agriculture processes, as well as a variety of math concepts.
Mayan Numerals
Studying Mayan Numerals makes a good connection between Math and Social Studies. Lessons on Mayan Numerals can be designed for a wide range of ages. For the primary grades it may be fun to look at this concept using shells, pebbles, and stones. This will help the students learn about place values, and the sorting and collection of different objects. For grades 4 - 6 manipulatives may also be used and then the students can go on to try some problems on their own (suggested exercises given). A Mayan Numerals lesson would also lend nicely to teaching about time and the cycle of a year.
Measurement: An Elementary Resource List (HTML or PDF)
A collection of elementary measurement resources compiled by students in a senior education mathematics class taught by Vi Maeers at the University of Regina.

Mr. Z's Five Minute Game of Geometric Pandemonium
This is an article in the sixth edition of Ideas and Resources for Teachers of Mathematics, a newsletter published by the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers' Society. The topic of the fifth edition of the newsletter is geometry. Mr. Z describes an activity that he uses to help students remember the definitions of geometric shapes.
Networks as a Problem Solving Technique
This note describes a situation which is familiar to students and constructs a mathematical model. A feature of this activity is that the problem described does not have a unique solution. Finding different solutions requires that the students have a good understanding of the problem, and different methods of solution provide an ideal opportunity for classroom discussion.
Once upon a time... (HTML or PDF)
This note shows mathematical concepts which can be developed through the use of children's literature. A list of books is included.
This is the lead article in the seventh edition of Ideas and Resources for Teachers of Mathematics, a newsletter published by the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers' Society. The topic of the sixth edition of the newsletter is petterning and algebra. In this article Vi and Rick introduce the concept of pattern through some ideas from literature and through a recent 'pattern' experience.
Patterning and Algebra in the Primary Grades
This one of the articles in the seventh edition of Ideas and Resources for Teachers of Mathematics, a newsletter published by the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers' Society. This issue focuses of patterning and algebra. Here Shelly discusses how she introduces patterning in kindergarten and grade 1 through the use of colours, shapes and sizes.
Patterns Here, There and Everywhere (HTML or PDF)
