Middle Level Mathematics: Encouraging an Algebraic Mindset.
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. The focuses of this issue is patterning and algebra. In this article Ed explores the questions
  • Is it possible to introduce algebraic concepts to the middle level student without invoking uneasiness and fear? and
  • How are we able to develop an algebraic mind set which will lead to successful algebraic abstraction at the secondary level?
Included are samples of students' solutions to problems which are based on the discovery and analysis of patterns.
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.
Performance Stations in Math (HTML or PDF)
Liliane Gauthier has written a collection of performance stations for mathematics, grades 6, 7, 8 and 9. Many of the stations have been designed as assessment tools for the Saskatchewan curriculum but teachers may choose to use them as introductory activities, practice activities or centre activities. This document contain a description of performance stations and how they might be used for performance assessment. To go directly to the performance stations select a grade level from grade 6 , grade 7, grade 8 and grade 9.
Pythagorean theorem research project
A student wrote to Quandaries and Queries looking for tips for a research project he had to write on the Pythagorean theorem. The reply from Jack and Walter has some good ideas that some teachers may find useful.
Size small school
In this grades 7 to 9 activity students make measurements of their school and then construct a scale drawing.
Surface Area to Volume Ratio
Help student discovery the relationship between surface area and volume through various activities. Once concept is attained, follow up with activities on where the surface area to volume ratio is found in the real world.

Recensement à l’école
Recensement à l‘école est un projet international en ligne qui permet aux élèves de la 4e année au Cégep (12e année) de découvrir le monde des enquêtes et de la statistique. Les élèves remplissent de façon anonyme un questionnaire d‘enquête en classe. Les enseignants ont accès aux résultats d’enquête de leur classe sous forme de chiffrier qu’ils peuvent utiliser pour enseigner des notions de statistique. Recensement à l’école offre aux élèves une occasion unique de participer à la collecte et à l‘analyse de leurs propres données.
Recensement à l’école - La théorie de Vitruve s'applique-t-elle à vous? (HTML or PDF)
Vérifiez la théorie qu’illustre le fameux croquis de Léonard de Vinci—selon laquelle l’étendue des bras est égale à la taille—en utilisant un échantillon d’élèves de votre classe.
