In addition to the BCAMT membership, Elementary schools across the province have received a special edition of Vector (the official journal of the BC Association of Mathematics Teachers) supporting the teaching of mathematics in the elementary classroom.
This exciting publication includes many well-known mathematics specialists from our province who present numerous mathematical investigations and teaching strategies that can be used in their classroom.

This year’s BCAMT New Teachers’ Conference is for anyone new to teaching math, and will be at Byrne Creek Secondary in Burnaby on November 29. Registration is open at http://bit.ly/1tPyAhp. For more information, visit the conference website at www.bcamt.ca/ntc.
Thanks to everyone who attended, spoke, or helped organize the fall conference. It was the best-attended fall conference of the past few years! Special thanks to Dr. Nathalie Sinclar for her keynote address. If you missed it, it is available at http://youtu.be/FILJ6FoDLXg
In support of the new curriculum, the BCAMT has developed a website that will host example resources that can be used to assess and guide students using the core curricular competencies. You can find it here:
