Extension Exercises for CAMS & STAMS

(Levels A-H)

Strengthen problem-solving and key math skills with the Extensions in Mathematics series, where students build computational fluency and conceptual understanding through:

 

  • Writing to explain solutions
  • Problem solving practice
  • Graphic organizers
  • Numbers in real-world contexts
  • Assessment with embedded test prep
  • Challenge problems and class projects

 

With step-by-step instruction and thorough practice to support students, they will develop into strategic, thoughtful and confident thinkers. In Extensions in Mathematics students are guided in applying strategies used by successful thinkers and then fill in graphic organisers as they learn how each strategy connects to ideas and information in numeracy.

 

Lessons focus on one skill at a time, using one or more graphic organizers such as:

  • Grids
  • Pie charts
  • Flow charts
  • Tables
  • Place-value charts
  • Number lines
  • Coordinate graphs
  • Venn diagrams
  • Schedules, calendars, maps
  • Spreadsheets
  • Rulers and protractors
  • Line graphs
  • Geometric figures

 

The series covers the following 12 mathematics strategies:

  • Building Number Sense

  • Using Estimation

  • Applying Addition

  • Applying Subtraction

  • Applying Multiplication

  • Applying Division

  • Converting Time and Money

  • Working with Measurements

  • Using Algebra

  • Using Geometry

  • Determining Probability and Averages

  • Interpreting Graphs and Charts

 

Level A consists of a student workbook, covering eight strategies, and one teacher guide.

Levels B-H cover the full 12 strategies and also have a student book and teacher guide for each level.
