Resources to Support Math Learning at Home (Grade 7-12)

Teens have many experiences that may impact their attitude and confidence in their mathematical ability. You can help your teen celebrate each success and deal with any challenges. You do not have to do the mathematics your teen brings home. What matters most is your attitude about the work they are doing.

Attitudes about mathematics and confidence in abilities in mathematics can have a great influence on success at school.
(from Partnering with your Teen in mathematics, Grades 7-12)

Below are some resources to help you with supporting your children with developing strong math skills and positive math identities:

Partnering with your Teen in mathematics, Grades 7-12

Inspiring Your Child to Learn and Love Math (English or French)

This resource supports parent engagement in ways that do not involve the direct teaching of mathematics. The tool kit is designed to foster the engagement of parents of elementary students in their children's mathematics learning, and to inform, support and nourish the work parents currently do as the first teachers of their children.

Games and Puzzles:

  • Blokus
  • Checkers
  • Chess
  • Monopoly
  • Qwirkle
  • Set

 

Online Resources:

  • Estimation 180 - Provide your students with estimation challenges to support their number sense and problem solving skills.
  • NCTM Illuminations - This site has been developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and houses math lessons, interactive simulations, games and brain teasers.
  • Knowledgehook - The TDSB has partnered with Knowledgehook to provide teachers and students access to activities and gamified practice. Speak to your child’s teacher for more information.
  • Math Before Bed - Math Before Bed is a collection of prompts that can inspire mathematical discussions that you and your children can have before bed, at dinner, or anytime.
  • Math Techbook - Students from Grades 7-10 have access to Math Techbook, an interactive and engaging online textbook with activities, lessons, videos and gamified practice.
  • Mathies - A site developed by the Ontario Ministry of Education, Mathies includes math games, virtual learning tools, activities and additional learning resources for teachers, students and parents.

  • TVO Mathify - Developed by TVO, this site provides FREE online math tutoring from Ontario Certified Teachers for students in Grades 7-10 from 5:30pm-9:30pm ET, Sunday to Thursday. Students can choose how they interact with tutors (via phone, chat box, VOIP) and can select their favourite tutors.
  • Visual Patterns - This site provides, well, visual patterns! Teachers and parents can use them to ask what the next sequence of diagrams would look like, or how many items there would be.

Which One Doesn’t Belong - This site provides math prompts to ask students which one doesn’t belong. The catch? There are no wrong answers, but students must be able to justify their choice.
