Probability Learning Goals

This is our last Math Unit before EQAO next week.  We will be doing the quiz on Thursday, May 17.

Probability Expectations
  • I can predict the frequency of an outcome in a simple probability experiment or game, then perform the experiment, and compare the results with the predictions, using mathematical language
  • I can demonstrate an understanding of fairness in a game and relate this to the occurrence of equally likely outcomes 
Here are some links to some games that you can play to practise these skills!

Algebra Learning Goals

We are working on our second last unit before our EQAO testing at the end of the month!  We are currently working on Algebra!  The expectations are as follows:
  • I can determine the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction
  • I can determine the missing number in equations involving addition and subtraction or 1 or 2 digit numbers 
  • I can identify the properties of zero and one in multiplication
  • I can identify and use the associative property of addition to facilitate computation with whole numbers
This is a great time to review the fact families with your child.  For example using the numbers 2, 3, 5 to manipulate the numbers to make different number sentences (2 + 3 = 5, 3 + 2 = 5, 5 - 3 = 2, 5 - 2 = 3).  Here is a video to reinforce these skills:

Here are some games to practise your Algebra skills.

Number Pattern Expectations

We have 3 more Math units to cover before our Review for EQAO testing.  This week we will focus on Number Patterns.  The expectations are as follows:
  • I can extend repeating, growing and shrinking number patterns
  • I can create a number pattern involving addition or subtraction, given a presented pattern on a number line or a written pattern rule
  • I can represent simple geometric patterns using a number sequence, number line, or a bar graph
Here are some online games you can try on your computers at home.  

Remember:  a good foundation in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division is helpful when working on number patterns; so practising your math facts is also a good idea.  Working on speed and accuracy with number facts is always an easy thing to practise in the car, on a walk, and at tuck in.

Geometry Learning Goals

This week's quiz will be on Thursday on Transformational Geometry.  The expectations are as follows:

1. I can identify reflections (flips), translations (slides), and rotations (turns).
2. I can complete and describe designs and pictures of images that have a line of symmetry.
3. I can describe movements from one location to another using a grid map.

Here are some games that you can play online to practise these skills:

Mass and Capacity

Measurement Expectations:

  • I can choose benchmarks for kg and litre
  • I can estimate, measure, and record the mass of objects using a kg or parts of a kg (half, quarter)
  • I can estimate, measure, and record the capacity of containers using a litre or parts of a litre
  • I can compare and order a collection of objects using mass or capacity


Some games to try:
