Recently I received a copy of Ministry of Education Newsletter Math in Motion and I was really impressed with the connection that is being made to improve student Math skills at both elementary and secondary levels through the use of web based technologies.
Shared in the article for teachers use is Edugains.ca website that is designed for students who need additional support in math. It uses diagnostics to uncover typical problems students have on a specific topic and then suggests instructional strategies to specifically target these deficits in learning. Various modules can be accessed through this site.
Also highlighted is the Homework Help page for students Grade 7 to 12. A free online math help resources for students of Ontario Grade 7 -10. It provides live one-to-one from Ontario teachers Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm. The program is funded by the Ontario government and administered by TVO’s Independent Learning Centre
