See the report on the Canada 150 Math Challenge prepared by our Mathematics Leadership community of practice!

This mathematics activity was initiated by the staff of Dr. David Suzuki PS in Windsor, as part of their whole-school mathematics leadership project. Check out the challenge tasks for Canada 150 of which most were developed by Kyle Pearce and Heidi Horn-Olivito from GECDSB, and enriched by many contributions across Canada.

Interesting findings emerged from the school data; students were interested and engaged in the activities with real-life data related to Canada’s anniversary. While this project enhanced Dr. David Suzuki PS students’ productive disposition towards mathematics, it may have also contributed to changing public attitudes towards mathematics, as it involved students, educators, parents, and communities across Canada.
