Pearson Canada Research Overview
Welcome to Mathematics Success for All, our research overview that has informed the development of our new family of math resources for K–9 Mathematics: Pearson Mathology.
Created with a deep understanding of Math learning and the needs of teachers, Mathology is a comprehensive math program with real-world applications that helps educators plan lessons, and engage and teach students across all skill levels. Co-developed with Canadian teachers, Mathology offers a differentiated learning program rooted in classroom reality, as well as effective teacher support. Based on an easy-to-understand Math learning progression, it combines insights from teacher interviews, focus groups, and classroom observations, with the best of pedagogical approaches and the academic research presented in this report.
Very early in the development process for Mathology, Pearson Canada surveyed the educator community in Canada to identify key research areas in Canadian mathematics that are influencing mathematics instruction (K–9) today.
This document provides an overview of the topics that these educators stated were crucial to high-quality mathematics instruction. Key quotes from research articles and reference materials are presented for each topic, and connected to the development of Mathology, to show how these ideas inform the resource.\

Finding math resources you can trust can be difficult and time-consuming. Mathology’s classroom resources are based on a learning progression backed by insights from teacher interviews, focus groups, and classroom observations–along with the best of academic research and pedagogical approaches. So you can focus on teaching, not searching for resources.
Pearson Canada’s Learning Progression shows you how students’ mathematical learning and knowledge grows over time. This Mathematics-based document reflects much of the recent investigation into mathematical learning while accommodating curricula through its focus on big ideas in mathematics.
