Gap Closing Resources
Gap Closing resources are designed for students who need additional support in mathematics. For each topic in the resource, there is a diagnostic and a set of intervention materials. Diagnostics are designed to uncover the typical problems students have with a specific topic. Each diagnostic can be used to tailor differentiated lessons as instructional decisions are being made for the struggling student.
- For Junior / Intermediate, the goal is to close gaps in Number Sense so that the student can be successful in learning grade-appropriate mathematics.
- For Intermediate / Senior, the goal is to close gaps in Number Sense, Measurement and Algebra so that the student can succeed in their mathematics program.

In response to requests for further practice from students engaged in Gap Closing research projects, ePractice activities are gradually being developed. ePractice activities are interactive web-based opportunities for students to build confidence in their understanding of concepts and skills. This release focuses on Representing Fractions for the Junior and Intermediate Divisions. Each activity aligns with a particular Gap Closing lesson.
|Go to ePractice.ca for the following released activities:|
|Representing One Half|
|Representing Proper Fractions as Parts of a Whole|
