Dear Parents and Guardians,
The monthly Letter to Families, distributed on the first Friday of the month, is intended to keep you apprised of news that affects all students and families of Near North District School Board (NNDSB).
Our NNDSB math team has developed a new webpage that will provide parents, guardians and caregivers with information and resources related to learning mathematics.
The page includes math curriculum links for Grades 1 to 8, information about the Grade 9 de-streamed math curriculum, as well as links for digital math tools such as DreamBox Learning.
Families can also use this page to connect to TVO Mathify, which offers free tutoring supports for Ontario students in Grades 4 to 12. We will continue to add content and links throughout the school year to support mathematics learning across our district.
You can find the NNDSB Mathematics for Families webpage here.
