OAME 2016

You know that feeling when you are trying really hard to get caught up on everything, but the "finish line" keeps moving? That's been me this week. I'm woefully behind on replying to emails, apparently have 9 comments awaiting moderation on my blog that I don't even remember getting notifications about (?!?) and I arrived home yesterday to a flooded upstairs bathroom which, of course, had spread to the downstairs bathroom, hallway and bedrooms while I was at school. When it rains, it pours! (sorry - couldn't help myself) 

However, I am attempting to work my way through my to-do list and owe David Petro my slide decks from OAME 2016. So, here they are:

WODB Session

Spiralling Panel Session
(this was with Bruce McLaurin, Jon Orr, Alex Overwijk & Sheri Walker)

Rethinking Grade 10 Math Double Session


Sunday, 1 May 2016


Last Thursday and Friday I had the privilege of working with some great math teachers from the Niagara region. I was invited to be part of the mini-conference for their OAME chapter (Golden Section) and got to meet so many wonderful teachers. The following morning I worked with a great group of teachers, most of whom have been spiralling through the curriculum this year. I want to thank Elizabeth Pattison and Liisa Suurtamm for giving me this opportunity. I have never before felt like my work has been so valued and cannot adequately express what a great experience this was.

And, as requested, here are my slides.
