Ontario releases new elementary school math curriculum, includes computer coding | FULL
Ontario is unveiling a new elementary math curriculum Tuesday, including learning to code and expanded learning on financial literacy.
Education Minister Stephen Lecce had previously announced a new, $200-million math strategy focusing on a “back to basics” approach.
He has blamed a decline in standardized testing scores on the former Liberal government’s curriculum, which focused on problem-solving that grounds math in its application.
The new curriculum includes financial literacy taught across all grades for the first time, teaching coding starting in Grade 1, and personal budgeting.
This is the first time the math curriculum in Ontario has been updated since 2005, said Premier Doug Ford.
