Throughout this grade, in order to promote a positive identity as a math learner, to foster well-being and the ability to learn, build resilience, and thrive, students willapply, to the best of their ability, a variety of social-emotional learning skills to support their use of the mathematical processes and their learning in connection with the expectations in the other five strands of the mathematics curriculum.

Students continue to develop healthy relationship skills while working with numbers. Students play games that involve fractions, decimals and whole numbers. They also learn how to have positive interactions and be patient with others as students take different amounts of time to figure out the answer when it is their turn.

The mathematics curriculum is divided into six strands:

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Skills in Mathematics and the Mathematical Processes
