A powerful math solution that provokes mathematical thinking in the modern classroom through provocations and math talk, guided by Nelson’s developmental trajectories.

The My Math Path Provocations Story

After two years in Canadian classrooms listening to teachers, our research found that incorporating math into play-based classrooms is difficult. That’s why we created My Math Path Provocations.

The effective use of provocations engage students in meaningful play and closes knowledge gaps. My Math Path Provocations: Kindergarten and Grade 1 provide a strong math foundation through hands-on learning along Nelson’s learning trajectories.
