OAME 2021 Conference Update

Due to complications arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not able to hold the OAME 2021 Annual Conference at Humber College. However, we have been able to find a replacement venue. OAME 2021 will now be held at The Beanfield Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto. The Beanfield Centre is a premier convention centre that is an ideal fit for the OAME conference, and we are very pleased to have been able to secure the entire space there.

Unfortunately, we have had to change the date of the conference. The new dates are May 20-21, 2021. Mark this event on your calendar, and consider staying in Toronto over the long weekend.

Wayne Erdman & Margaret Quinn
Co-Chairs, OAME 2021

P.S. Presenters: We are now open for Session Proposals! Login to MCIS, then click on the  Propose  tab. 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.

We would also like to remind you of resources that have been made available to all students and teachers in the province such as:
