WHAT ARE SASKATCHEWAN LEARNING RESOURCE PACKS?

Saskatchewan Learning Resource Packs are collections of activities that were designed by expert math teachers. These activities involve a number of different instructional strategies and they encourage students to understand mathematical concepts at higher levels. Often students will "discover" certain rules by completing an activity, or they will learn first hand when one type of graph or chart may work better than another. The activities may include use of math manipulatives (both common manipulatives and not so common manipulatives), centres and so forth.

These resource packs are full of very useful information and are the handouts given to attendees of any of the Math Workshops given by Saskatchewan Learning.

These files are available to you in both the WORD (.doc) and PDF format so that you can take the activity "as is" (PDF) or take it in a form that you can easily modify (.doc)to suit your own needs.
