Canadian Mathematical Society - Free Webinars

Next Monday, the Canadian Mathematical Society will be receiving Dr. Pamela Brittain within the cadre of CMS Fundraising Webinar Series. Dr. Brittain will present a overview of the past 150 years in Ontario math curriculum.

When: Monday, April 12, 2021 at 1:00pm
Where: Register here to receive the Zoom link.

Abstract: Mathematics in education has had its purpose questioned, its method of instruction debated, and its effectiveness tested in many different ways. In fact it may be one of the most hotly debated subjects in schools. In this talk we take a look at the past 150 years in Ontario math curriculum and investigate some of the thoughts, ideas, reports, and proposals that have brought us to where we are now in our math curriculum. While it by no means captures all the debates and changes from the past 150 years, I hope to give a general overview of some of the discussions that have taken place around this subject so that we may better understand where we are now, and gain a glimpse of an idea of where we could go in future.

The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) has a new initiative for Black and Indigenous students. Within the context of this initiative we offer a free webinars to students and educators. link ...

Online Resources for Math at Home

In response to the current COVID-19 outbreak, OAME/AOEM wants to remind members that there are many supports available for teachers and students to assist with online learning that are available on the OAME/AOEM website. Free to all (members and non-members) are resources such as:
  • Mathies (https://www.mathies.ca/) - These online tools provide students and teachers games, activities, learning supports and other links to assist with learning at home. Note that many of these are also available in French.
  • Grade Specific Resources (https://oame.on.ca/main/index.php?code=grspecres) - Many resources from K-12 that include activities (many from the TIPS4RM lessons) as well as financial literacy resources. NOTE: This now includes resources that were originally in the Members Only section.
  • Math4theNines (http://www.math4thenines.ca/resources.html) - These resources were specifically designed for Grade 9. Great tasks for your students and research for you to dive into.
In addition to the resources noted above, members have access to all of the member resources (once you log in). These include some of the grade specific resources that are not posted publicly for Grade 10 and Grade 12 as well as all webinar recordings from the last two seasons of OAMEtalks and recordings of the featured speakers from OAME 2019.
