Math Leadership CoP Updates

The Mathematics Leadership Community of Practice (ML CoP) has been busy! We are happy to share the following updates about meetings, conferences, events, and more.

OAME CONFERENCE

ML CoP members attended the OAME conference in Kingston May 11-13 and many presented.

David Petro (WECDSB; SWOAME; starting from Sept 2017, President Elect of OAME) did three presentations, namely: Meaningful Use of Technology (with Crystal Gascho, a teacher from AMDSB), Is that your Pokemon Go! in my Data?, and Letting Students Think in Grade 9 Math (with Gisele Jobin, a teacher from WECDSB). Here are the first slides and one image from the Letting Students Think in Grade 9 Math presentation.

The WECDSB was recently in the last days of their Canada150 activity. In May students were asked to submit math questions that are related to Canada and have the answer 150.
