TIPS4Math is now available to support you with planning your mathematics program.

The Grades 1 to 3, 4 to 6, and 7 & 8 overviews outline a possible scope and sequence aligned from grades 1 to 8 to support differentiated instruction and combined grades.  The overviews consist of lesson bundles identifying specific and overall expectations as well as possible timing based on 60 minutes per day.  There is flexibility in timing to support additional days for assessment, reinforcement, practice and evaluation. Each lesson bundle overview outlines a possible lesson sequence with its learning focus and hyperlinks to key mathematics resources such as mathies learning tools and games, guides to effective instruction, blended learning activities for grades 4 to 8, and TIPS4RM.

TIPS4Math Grade 9 Applied overview units are organized the same way as TIPS4RM.   The lesson overviews for each of the units identify learning foci and include links to the blended learning activities and other key mathematics resources.  The teacher notes for the blended learning activities include information to implement the activity including prior knowledge, next steps, common misconceptions, suggestions for activity including solutions and additional information to support/enhance and extend learning.

TIPS4Math Grade 10 Applied overview units are organized the same way as TIPS4RM.   The lesson overviews for each of the units identify learning foci and include links to key mathematics resources.
