Communities of Practice
Our four CoPs completed their Year 1 activities and have created and shared various resources such as research minis, documentaries, lesson plans, literature reviews, and more.
CoP leads met on October 24, 2017 to share their work from Year 1, discuss future plans, and find cross-CoP connections. Attendees represented all 4 CoPs, the MKN Executive, TVO, KNAER, and the Ministry of Education. CoP leads will meet again in January 2018 to report on progress, share artifacts, and discuss next steps.

Math9-12 is a research-based study designed to bring new life to the high school mathematics curriculum! This study is lead by Dr. Peter Taylor (Queen’s University, Department of Mathematics and Statistics), is funded by the Fields Institute and SSHRC, and is part of our Critical Transitions Community of Practice.
Each project has three interacting phases:
At the end of August 2017, workshops were held in Kingston, Ottawa, and Toronto to introduce the project to teachers. Teachers were (and are) highly encouraged to try the Math9-12 problems in their classrooms and provide feedback on their experiences.
You can find these great Math9-12 resources on their project website. Give them a try and let the Math9-12 team know about your experience!
