OAME 2015 - huge success!
Congratulations goes out to Wayne Erdman and his amazing team of organizers and volunteers who helped make this year's conference such a HUGE success and best ever! Anyone who attended the Building Mathematical Mindsets
conference, which was held at Humber College North Campus on May 7 - 10, 2015, will vouch for that! If you did attend, please remember to fill out the online evaluation
, after which you will be able to print off a Certificate of Participation as well as your Official OAME 2015 Receipt. Check the OAME2015 website

2 New Apps! Money & Notepad for iOS, Android & HTM
Represent various money amounts using these realistic images of Canadian coins and bills.
Create visual representations that help explore mathematical thinking related to:
Estimating and counting the value of a collection of money
Skip counting using the value of one of the coins or bills
Representing the relationship between coins and bills. (Eg. There are 8 quarters in a toonie)
Adding and subtracting money amounts by making simulated purchases and providing change
Exploring place value and unit conversions
Write solutions, sketch diagrams, create graphs and record your mathematical thinking using the Notepad by mathies. Take a screenshot of your work to share with your teacher or add to a portfolio.
Select the background: grid, isometric dot, lined or blank
Customize the background s appearance by adjusting colours or the number of rows and columns, resizing and/or repositioning
Type notes using the text tool
Use the pencil tool for freestyle writing and drawings
Use the built-in shapes for precise drawing including arrows, lines, rectangles, squares, ovals, circles, triangles and starbursts
Change colour, line thickness, fill colour and transparency
Rekenrek App - On AppStore and Google Play
Rekenrek by mathies
is a virtual learning tool which can be used to build a deeper understanding of number concepts and relationships. A powerful feature of this tool is the ability for students to explain their mathematical thinking using the annotation features. This is the first official "app" brought to you by OAME in partnership with the Ministry of Education and CODE. It is now available in the App store
for iOS devices and the Google Play store
for Android. A desktop version can be downloaded from mathies.ca link ...
New on mathies.ca
Just released - check out "Diamond Drop - Sign of a Sum
" which is a game that reinforces integer addition, and the result of adding two integers (by categorizing the sum as being > 0, or < 0, or = 0)
Also released are two more virtual tools, "Relational Rods" and "Whole Numbers Rods" which allow you to represent, compare, order, and operate on whole numbers, fractions or decimals by dragging rods from the relational rod tower into the workspace and manipulating them. link ...
