Math Knowledge Network QUARTERLY 1(3)
Welcome to Volume 1 Issue 3 of the Math Knowledge Network Quarterly!
The first 3 years of the Math Knowledge Network: Impact Report!
We are excited to share the first 3 years of impact from Communities of Practice: Critical Transitions, Computational Modelling, Indigenous Knowledge & Math Leadership.
Thank you to our 36 partner organizations for their support!

It was a busy summer for the MKN and our CoPs! Read our latest updates here to find out what our CoPs have been up to, explore recently added resources, and learn how you can get involved.

With a focus on experiential learning, Brock University students worked collaboratively with Niagara Catholic District School Board teachers to develop engaging, coding-based activities for students that were explicitly or implicitly about mathematics.
Teams first explored resources developed by Dr. George Gadanidis, which led them to further develop 4 CT-based math tasks. You can now access the summaries here!
In Spring 2017, members of our Critical Transitions CoP began a project in locally developed Grade 9 classrooms in partnership with Lakehead University and Lakehead Public Schools. In June 2017, in-depth semi-structured interviews of three teachers at the partner high school who had or were teaching the Grade 9 Locally Developed course were conducted. Throughout the project, a number of new classroom resources, lessons, and so on were designed, field tested and revised, and this work is on-going.
To learn about the project so far, check out their full report, “Revisioning the Three R’s from the Ground Up: Relationships, Resilience, and Resources.” A 1-page summary is also available here.
