Canadian Math Worksheets
Welcome to Math-Drills.Ca! Math worksheets in Canada include differences due to Canada's history of British and French rule and the influence of the United States to the South. The main differences that one might encounter include the following.
- Large numbers are formatted with spaces rather than commas between groups of 3. For example, 3 000 000 rather than 3,000,000. Despite the convention, most Canadians would use or at least be familiar with the comma-separated thousands.
- In Quebec and other French-speaking parts of Canada, a comma might be used as a decimal. In English Canada, the period is used.
- Canada has used the Metric system since the 1970's, so units will often be Metric units. The Imperial system is still used in some cases, especially among older generations.
- Canada uses its own currency, so math worksheets for money would include Canadian denominations. In Canada, the penny is no longer used, so the smallest coin is the nickel or 5 cents. There are also 10 cent, 25 cent, 1 dollar and 2 dollar coins. 50 cent coins exist but aren't commonly used. Canadian notes come in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. $1000 notes exist but are no longer made.
