Mathematics in the Toronto District School Board

Mathematical skills, knowledge and processes play a crucial part in developing active and informed citizens in a society where data and technology continue to play greater roles. In recognition of this, it is important that all students’ learning opportunities are mathematically rich, meaningful to students, and serve to expand their understanding of the world around them. The Toronto District School Board is committed to ensuring that mathematics teaching and learning meets this goal.

The Multi-Year Strategic Plan identifies goals and actions that guide the work of the system, schools and classrooms to support students’ development of math thinking, procedural fluency and conceptual understanding. The Vision for Learning illustrates that deep learning practices, supported by technology, are vital for modern learners to view mathematics as worthwhile and themselves as effective math learners and doers. Through the TDSB’s commitment to equity, inclusion and anti-oppression, mathematics instruction should reflect the voices, identities, abilities, lived experiences and expertise of students through an Inclusive Design approach. It is also through this commitment that systemic barriers to high-quality mathematics education are identified, addressed and eliminated.

Partnerships between schools and parents/caregivers are an important component to ensuring students meet their highest potential in mathematics learning. The resources on this site will help caregivers with supporting their children learn and do mathematics with confidence.
