The BCAMT listserv is an excellent way to stay informed of recent developments in BC Math Education. Nearly one thousand educators from across the province, country (and even the world!) are connected via email. Get the latest developments first hand and also provide yourself with an arena to be heard. The listserv connects math teachers who are ready and willing to share advice and expertise on math education. You may find a debate on a “hot topic”, someone seeking or giving advice or possibly a useful problem/activity for the classroom!
There are two convenient ways to sign up.
1. Email Colin McLellan – ask to get added to the group
2. Fill in a form at the BCTF website.
To join or leave the BCAMT listserv simply visit the BCTF website (bctf.ca/lists-psa) which has a very easy to use process set up on their site
If you are interested in past discussions on the listserv, consider joining the archive of discussions hosted by Google Groups. This archive goes back to August 1, 2010. Discussions before this are archived in this excel file (10.4MB)
