The BCAMT Fall Conference is coming up on October 20 and registration is open!
Our keynote speaker is Marc Garneau, a K-12 Numeracy Helping Teacher for the Surrey School District. He has a passion for sense-making through visualization and has served on the BCAMT Executive for the past 16 years.
We have a wide range of sessions for teachers working with mathematics all the way from Kindergarten to AP Calculus. Early bird registration is open until Sept 24!
Update: The Jo Boaler presentation is SOLD OUT! (Sorry!)
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
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.
