Teaching math through problem-solving: Classroom-friendly strategies


The Ontario Teachers’ Federation (OTF), with support from the Ministry of Education, presents this interactive professional learning event.

July 5-6, 2017; Holiday Inn Toronto Airport

A two-day conference for Ontario educators who wish to learn more about teaching and assessing math in a problem-solving classroom. Math educators of all grades will focus on the pedagogical practices that will lead students to thinking and reasoning mathematically as opposed to simply “doing the math.”

Participants will leave with practical examples of how they can effectively apply the ideas and resources to their classroom practice.
