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!

NEW Brock U-NCDSB CT + Math Tasks

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!

Brock U-Niagara Catholic DSB CT Initiative

With a focus on experiential learning, five 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.

This partnership is part of their MATH 3P41 course, designed for future teachers and taught by Professor of Mathematics and Statistics, Chantal Buteau.

To learn more about this innovative project, read the News Article from Brock University.


This project was partially funded by our Computational Thinking Community of Practice. Leading this project is Chantal Buteau, who is a member of our CT CoP and represents Brock University on the MKN Advisory Panel.
