At the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB), our desire is for all students to enjoy mathematics and to believe they are capable of reasoning, and of applying mathematical thinking in their daily lives.
Mathematics Action Plan 2019-2021
Our Mathematics Action Plan focuses on providing exceptional educational experiences for students in mathematics and numeracy.
The plan focuses on promoting the understanding of mathematical concepts and fundamentals, as well as problem solving and reasoning.
Some of the programs and supports that have been implemented to improve student achievement include:
