Mathematics Curriculum

Alberta is recognized worldwide as a leader in the development of quality curriculum. The revised Kindergarten to Grade 12 Mathematics program maintains this standard by integrating current research, developments and trends in Math learning and teaching.

Alberta's Math programs require that students can not only add, subtract, multiply and divide, but that they also know how to reason and solve problems in real-life situations. The Math programs were developed in collaboration with post-secondary institutions, teachers, administrators, and parents. The program is aligned with the most up-to-date research into the teaching and learning of Math.

Supporting Teachers and Parents with the Current Math Program

To assist school authorities and parents, Alberta Education has created a number of of online resources.

A series of five videos for parents introduces how elementary students are communicating, solving problems, using technology and applying strategies in Mathematics.

Also, Alberta Education has an Frequently Asked Questions to address some concerns from parents.
