A grade 4 enrichment activity
In this resource John explains how he used the “grains of wheat on a checkerboard” activity in a grade 4 classroom.
Aboriginal Perspectives
Aboriginal Perspectives is a companion web site to Math Central. It is part of Mathematics with a Human Face. The purpose is to create and make available lesson ideas for teachers, constructed around video clips with an Aboriginal focus. The site is under construction and in its infancy but the intent is that the number of video clips will increase and the lessons will span all areas of the curriculum.

Aboriginal resources in mathematics education
Karen designed this website to assist teachers and pre-service teachers in the area of mathematics from Kindergarten to Grade 12 . Here you will find a multitude of teacher resources to assist you in incorporating Aboriginal content in your mathematics program.
Games from the Aboriginal People of North America
This is a collection of Aboriginal games that teachers can use to integrate culture into Mathematics lessons. The mathematical content includes patterns and relations, probability, data management, numbers and operations, problem solving, critical thinking, and geometry. Students will have fun with the games while they apply their mathematical knowledge.
Hands On Math Activities for Grades 4-6
This is a kit of 30 hands on activities for students in grades 4-6. There are activities in data management and analysis, geometry, measurement, numbers and operations, problem solving and assessment and evaluation. All of the activities contain teacher notes and task cards.
Integer Review Competition (HTML or PDF)
A competition devised by students in a Mathematics Education class.
Let's Celebrate 100 Days! (HTML or PDF)
Here's an interesting way to incorporate real math into your daily morning activities. Begin with the first day of school and end, with a celebration, on the 100th day of the school year.
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.
Money Talks: Canadian Money
Money Talks is one of the resources from the Stewart Resource Center. It contains two to three weeks of lessons on money at the grades three and four levels . Included are lessons, suggestions for on-going activities, support materials and resources.
Money Unit for Grade Five (HTML or PDF)
A Money Unit developed for Grade 5 includes Math, Integration,and Learning center activities, bulletin board ideas, suggested teacher resources and evaluation sections. Activites are tied back to the Saskatchewan Education Mathematics Curriculum Guide (Elementary) with Strands, Topics and CELS covered within the unit.
Patterns Here, There and Everywhere (HTML or PDF)
This Stewart Resource unit deals with introducing the concept of patterning into the primary classroom. The unit provides a 10 day scope of learning objectives and the activites for each of the 10 days. Also included is activity suggestions for integrating this theme into other subjects.
Place Value: K-3 (HTML or PDF)
A collection of Place Value activities which have been developed for grades K-3. Includes ideas for concrete math materials to accompany each of the activities.
Plane Geometry (HTML or PDF)
A unit filled with activities which provide many of ideas for integrating Plane Geometry into the elementary classroom. There are lots of hands on activities with manipulatives and real experiences. Activity lesson plans include Objectives, Materials, Directions and Extentions. Bibliography of resources used for compiling this unit is also included.
The Amazing Mathematical Object Factory
AMOF, the Amazing Mathematical Object Factory produces lists of mathematical objects in response to customer orders. Products include permutations, combinations, pentominoes, magic squares, subsets and more. AMOF was created in the Computer Science Department of the University of Victoria and is currently on the SchoolNet site.
