EJC: WORKSHOPS

 

Invited Professional Development Workshops

Chernoff, E. J. (2013, August). Solving equations: a make-work project for math teachers. Presentation at the 2013 Prince Albert and Area Teachers' Convention. Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

Chernoff, E. J. (2013, May). Experiencing a new approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics: the instructors become the students. Workshop for the Senior Basic Education Mathematics Instructors from the Kelsey, Palliser, Wascana and Woodland Campuses of the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST). SIAST Kelsey Campus, Saskatoon, Canada.

Abstract. As we are all well aware, the teaching and learning of mathematics in the province of Saskatchewan is in the midst of major change and will be for the next few years. The province’s adoption of the WNCP’s Common Curriculum Framework not only introduces new curricula (text books, etc.), but, arguably, introduces a new approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics. The purpose of this session is to provide participants with (1) an overview of the changes (2) an opportunity to experience this new approach to the teaching and learning mathematics and (3) a chance to discuss the tensions between theoretical and practical issues found in both Reform and Traditional classrooms and frustrations that have resulted from the change. Be ready to do some mathematics. If you are a keener, you might read this ahead of time: http://www.maa.org/devlin/lockhartslament.pdf
