Et si enseigner les maths était une source de plaisir… (K–9)
Limited Capacity seats available

Vous êtes débutant ou nouvellement arrivé en Alberta? Alors, bien comprendre le programme d'études et ses nuances pourra réduire votre stress: ce qu'il faut mémoriser versus ce qu'il faut comprendre, le concret versus l'imagé versus le symbolique, la pratique versus le jeu. Afin d'augmenter votre plaisir d'enseigner les maths, nous discuterons d'approches possibles. Et afin de diminuer l'anxiété des élèves en maths, des activités et des ressources vous seront proposées tout en touchant à l'acquisition de la langue française.

Hands-On Activities in Mathematics Classrooms (9–12)
Limited Capacity seats available

Too often we get caught up in the algebra when it comes to higher level mathematics. We forget that even our most advanced learners need to explore patterns in interesting, hands-on ways. In this session, we will build recognizable graphs, make statistical inferences, and complete familiar calculations that result from active participation in measurement activities.

Nix the Tricks and Rules That Expire: Teaching for Mathematical Understanding (4–9)
Limited Capacity seats available

Being a mathematics student is about critical thinking, justification, and using tools of past experiences to solve new problems. Students who approach every topic as a series of steps to memorize are not learning math. They may learn Rules that Expire as they develop more sophisticated knowledge, such as Addition Make Bigger and Subtraction Makes Smaller. In this session, we will explore how to replace some popular rules and tricks with teaching for understanding. Concepts explored will include number sense and place value, basic operations, order of operations, integers, fractions, and more. Math makes sense!
