3-5 Numeracy Foundations

3-5 Numeracy Foundations

​​​​​​​​​​​​This SD38 Grades 3-5 Numeracy Foundations framework is designed to support the District Strategic Plan’s priority of nurturing inspired numerate learners. Part of the strategic plan is developing a K-12 Numeracy Vision and Framework for our district. The Richmond School District Vision statemen​t is:

“The Richmond School District’s Vision for Numeracy supports the development of a shared understanding of the relationship between numeracy and mathematics so that students experience numeracy across all areas of learning. By using numeracy to access and deepen understanding of content, students learn how to solve problems, explore ideas and issues and make informed decisions. All learners will have opportunities to develop numeracy so that they can better understand themselves and the world around them.”​​

The visual below represents the connection between mathematics and numeracy and the many related components, represented in the visual as coloured blocks. Each block of this framework links to supporting resources to guide planning, instruction, and assessment.
