This 1-hour webcast introduces some key notions of numeracy coaching from the experiences of Ontario classroom teachers, principals, consultants, superintendents, and math education researchers. These educators share examples of effective instructional strategies in problem solving. Their professional development model involves co-teaching and inquiry; teams of educators consult with a classroom teacher prior to a lesson, observe the lesson, review the results, and plan next steps. The video can be streamed or downloaded as a podcast.

This lesson develops number skills, understanding of coin values, and the concept of equivalence. Students use coin blocks, concrete representations of the value of coins (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters), to compose and decompose values up to a dollar. The resource includes a 3-minute video for teachers on how to build the coin blocks prior to the lesson. An interactive game, Coin Box, provides additional practice for students and is cataloged separately.

This 2-lesson unit focuses on combinations, a subject related to probability. Students develop strategies for discovering all the possible combinations in two given situations. They learn to collect and organize data and then use the results to generalize methods for determining possible combinations. They discuss how the number of possible outcomes is affected by decisions about the order of choices, or whether choices may be repeated. The unit includes student activity sheets, questions and extensions for students, and a link to an interactive applet.
