Please email Deanna: firstname.lastname@example.org
BCAMT welcomes Jo Boaler, the world-renowned Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University and co-founder of youcubed.com to Richmond, BC. 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.
The revised curriculum drafts as of June 2017 for Grade 10-12 Workplace / Apprenticeship, Foundations and Pre-calculus Math courses are now available here.
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.
