What’s New

New Canadian Editions

In 2016, JUMP Math undertook a major project to create new editions of our Grade 1-8 resources, starting with Grade 3, and to add a Kindergarten offering. The new resources for Kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2, Grade 3, and Grades 4 and 6 are all available now, and the new resources for Grade 5 are being published for the 2019-2020 school year. Expanded editions of the 2009 Edition Teacher Resources for Grades 7 and 8 are also available now, until major revisions of those grades are released.

  • Improved TR navigational tools, including a full table of contents showing which lessons to teach to cover your provincial curriculum requirements
  • Improved lesson plan format and content, with simplified activities requiring fewer materials and less preparation time, lots of individual student exercises, and extensions
  • Shorter units that create diversity of content and ensure that prior knowledge is done first
  • Greater focus on the most fundamental topics at each grade level
  • Additional focus on mental math in the TR, including number talks to develop communication skills and flexible strategies
  • New quizzes and tests for each TR unit, in four versions tailored to the curriculum standards for British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario
