The results of our Critical Transitions CoP‘s Kindergarten Educator survey are now available. Please share our summary infographic widely! Stay tuned for the full paper, available in December 2018.
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:
- Curriculum development: work with students and teachers informally or in the classroom.
- Development of teacher resources and student workbooks.
- Classroom research: document the teaching activity and the student experience.
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!
