Foreword

This list of learning resources identifies high-quality resources that have been recommended by the Ministry of Education to support Mathematics 6. This list will be updated as new resources are recommended and older ones are no longer available. A list of additional learning resources can be found on the Ministry of Education website.

(CAN) indicates that a Canadian contributed to the development of the resource and/or that it includes Canadian content. (SK) indicates that a Saskatchewan person contributed to the development of the resource and/or that it includes Saskatchewan content. Resources evaluated and recommended as support for the Western and Northern Canadian Protocol curriculum frameworks and Saskatchewans provincial curricula have the designation (WNCP) before the annotation.

Other resources beyond those recommended in this list may effectively support Mathematics 6. It remains the responsibility of educators to preview and select materials that best meet the needs of their students, school, and community. Educators should choose these materials in accordance with the school divisions learning resources selection policy.

Pricing of the learning resources contained in this list is subject to change without notice.

Manipulatives are an essential component of an effective mathematics program, leading to the development of deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Included are charts outlining the types of manipulatives needed, the suggested uses, and the suggested quantity recommended (where appropriate). Some manipulatives may be collected; others may be constructed; and many may be purchased. The main distributors for these materials are Exclusive Educational Products at www.exclusiveeducational.ca and Spectrum Nasco Educational Supplies Ltd. at www.spectrumed.com. Please consult these companies catalogues for purchasing information.

The Ministry of Education expresses its appreciation to publishers, producers, and distributors who have provided learning resources for evaluation, and gratefully acknowledges the contributions made by educators who served as evaluators.

Suggested UsesNumberPatterns and RelationsStatistics and Probability

This series was developed in partnership with the Yupik Inuit Elders in Alaska and with the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. It provides an authentic example of ways to integrate First Nations, Mtis and Inuit content, to incorporate cultural ways of knowing, and to bridge gaps between different ways of knowing and understanding. The series includes cultural stories given by Elders.

Note: Imperial measurements, along with some metric measurements, are used. Also, the term Eskimo appears instead of Inuit which is the culturally appropriate term in Canada. Teachers are encouraged to use and adapt the materials as needed to support Saskatchewans mathematics curriculum.
