I own a site that publishes teaching resources, including ma
ny math worksheets, for elementary teachers.
We've had many requests to "translate" our worksheets into C
anadian-English. For example: If our instructions say, "Co
lor the odd numbers blue" - our Canadian customers want an a
lternate version available that says "Colour the odd numbers
blue." We've been going through our site, and making Canad
ian spelling changes as-needed. (Common words have include
d colour-color; favourite-favorite; meter-metre; litre-liter
; and so on.)
My question is this: How do you format large numbers in ele
Do you write them like this:
567 123 132 ?
Or like this:
I have seen it both ways online, but mostly with commas. I
have an older Canadian math textbook (Math Makes Sense - 6th
grade) that uses the spaces.
So can you help me out? Commas or no commas?
Also - are there any other Canadian-specific math words that
we should be aware of that we may have missed?
