The 2019-21 program. In January 2019 we embarked on a new joint research project with Christine Suurtamm at the University of Ottawa. Chris is an internationally known researcher in mathematics education with specialties in secondary curriculum and assessment. The two of us, together with our undergraduate and graduate students and post-docs will work in selected classrooms to observe the behaviour of both teachers and students working with our Math9-12 curriculum. This is a two-year program focused on grade 11 in 2019-20 and on grade 12 in 2020-21.
We will kick each of the two years off with a teacher’s workshop in the last week of August––a Grade 11 workshop in Ottawa (Aug 27-28, 2019) and a Grade 12 workshop in Toronto (August 2020). Teachers who are interested or who want to know more should get in touch with Peter Taylor.
Students who are interested in this work should get in touch with Peter Taylor. Positions are available for graduate work, both at the Master’s and the PhD level.
Funding for Math9-12 comes from the KNAER Mathematical Knowledge Network (MKN
), an initiative of the Ontario Ministry, the Fields Institute
, the Canadian Mathematical Society
, Queen’s University and the University of Ottawa.
Peter has written a paper about this work called Teach the Mathematics of Mathematicians.
