Jo Boaler coming to Vancouver!

BCAMT welcomes Jo Boaler, the world renowned Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University and co-founder of youcubed, to Richmond, BC.  Jo Boaler, expert on teaching and
learning, has studied why students don’t like math and often fail in math classes. She’s followed thousands of students through middle and high schools to study how they learn and to find the most effective ways to unleash the mathematician in all learners.

In this highly anticipated workshop, we will consider together what it means to teach math for a growth mindset. We will dig into the brain science, the mindset messages, and experience first hand deeper understanding through rich activities. Participants will transform not only their relationship with mathematics, but those of their students.

Registration is available at: www.bcamt.ca/boaler

 

Basic Number Facts

Children learn mathematics to help them make better sense of the world around them, and to develop skills necessary in their lives. Part of this is achieving computational fluency with basic multiplication and addition facts. The BCAMT has produced a pamphlet (and accompanying web page) for parents, teachers, and students that attempts to answer some frequently asked questions about how to learn basic number facts. You can access it and download the pamphlet at www.bcamt.ca/facts.
