The Mathematics Kindergarten to Grade 12 programs of study are based on the Common Curriculum Framework (CCF) under the Western Northern Canadian Protocol. The CCF identifies beliefs about mathematics, general and specific student outcomes, and achievement indicators. The main goals of mathematics education are to prepare students to:

• solve problems

• communicate and reason mathematically

• make connections between mathematics and its applications

• become mathematically literate

• appreciate and value mathematics

• make informed decisions as contributors to society
