The Ontario Ministry of Education commissioned this 10-page document to serve as a guide for planning and implementing improvements in mathematics teaching and learning. It details seven Foundational Principles which involve educators at all levels. They describe what is involved in, and what is required, in order to focus on mathematics, to coordinate and strengthen leadership, to build effective instruction practices, to support professional development, to create a responsive environment, and to provide effective assessment and learning resources. A discussion tool (pdf) to be used in planning is included as a related resource.
