Learn Alberta Math Planning Guides

Alberta Learning Mathematics Planning Guides are a tool for K- 9 teachers to use in designing instruction and assessment that focuses on developing and deepening students’ understanding of mathematical concepts. This tool is based on the process outlined in Understanding by Design by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe.

These detailed guides help teachers design for conceptual understanding on math concepts at their grade level.  They support teachers to identify and deepen understanding of curricular outcomes, determine evidence of student learning, plan for instruction and assess student learning.
