I've been trying to find a more flexible way to approach teaching mathematics to students, one that shows students that everything they learn over the course of a year is interconnected. The Continuum and Connections resource does a really good job of breaking the grade 7, grade 8, grade 9 and grade 10 math curriculums into units containing all five strands. However, the documents are a bit too large to work with on a daily basis. This is my attempt at making this resource into something that is immediately useful in the classroom.
It is still important to refer to the curriculum to make sure that all expectations are covered, but on a day-to-day basis, I really find this document easier to work with.
There are six units for each of the grades. In each of those units, I have placed the plans for grades 7, 8, 9 and 10. This makes it a bit easier to compare across grades, but unfortunately takes a couple extra moments if you are looking for all the plans for just one grade.
- Patterning and Algebraic Modelling;
- Perimeter, Area and Volume;
- Proportional Reasoning; and
- Solving Equations.

The "Continuum and Connections" (link to page) documents are definitely worth consulting in their original context. In case that ever goes offline, I have also mirrored the documents here:
- Big Ideas, Questioning and Proportional Reasoning
- Patterns and Algebraic Modelling
- Perimeter, Area and Volume
- Proportional Reasoning
- Solving Equations
