Coding in the Ontario Mathematics Curriculum, 1-8: Might it be transformational?

Coding in the Ontario Mathematics Curriculum, 1-8: Might it be transformational?

Read the March 2021 report here!

Might coding, in some ways and to some extent, fundamentally transform how we learn, teach and think about mathematics in grades 1-8 education?

To answer this question we turn to diSessa (2000, 2018), to view coding through a literacy lens, and map the Ontario situation to diSessa’s literacy principles.

The “evidence” we use comes from 3 sources: Ontario curriculum documents, teaching resources developed by team members, and data from mathematics + coding classroom research conducted by team members in Ontario and in Brazil.

MKN Quarterly Volume 2, Issue 1: Covid-19 Resources Report

Math Knowledge Network QUARTERLY 2 (1)

Dear MKN Partners and Members,

Welcome to Volume 2 Issue 1 of the Math Knowledge Network Quarterly!

We are starting our fifth year with some leadership changes. Dona Kotsopoulos, a soon to be Dean of Western Faculty of Education is continuing as a Co-Director, joined by Dragana Martinovic, Professor from University of Windsor, who is replacing George Gadanidis, while he is on sabbatical. This year was challenging for all educators, school leaders, parents and students, making it even more important that we celebrate resilience and successes in our communities. In this Newsletter, you can read about activities of our four communities of practice in the previous quarter. Wishing you all health and happiness as we are closing on 2020!

Donna & Dragana (MKN co-Directors), & Arielle (MKN Coordinator)
