Testimonials

“The teachers in Newfoundland and Labrador who participated in PRIME are enthusiastic and excited about the resources. They like the practical, teacher friendly manner in which the content and process standards are presented. Many of them said that the resource has helped to increase their own mathematical understandings and to improve their instruction in a meaningful way.“
— Marion Fushell, Assistant Deputy Minister, Ministry of Education, Newfoundland

“After two years of research our board carefully chose to use PRIME. The program provides the needed professional development for teachers to be able to better assist their students with truly achieving conceptual understanding of mathematics expectations. Along with strong background content knowledge several strategies are suggested to assist the struggling learner with moving along the learning continuum. It is a valuable resource for all educators.”
— Bryan Baird, Vice–Principal, Renfrew County Student Success Leader

“Some elementary teachers do not have a background in the teaching of mathematics and some principals struggle to provide appropriate professional development to help them. PRIME is a wonderful tool to address this problem. PRIME sets out the mathematical skills that should be learned at each developmental stage. Moreover, it enables the teacher to assess what individual students have missed along the way and the next steps. PRIME provides a longoverdue framework for reflective practice for the teaching of mathematics.”
James G. McCracken Director of Education, Ottawa Carleton Catholic School District
