What’s new in math?

Check out some of these (fairly) new resources supporting mathematics education in Ontario:

On the CEA site, they have posted a video, an excerpt from their 2015 neurosymposium: The best way for children to learn math: An evidence-based truce in the ongoing math wars by Daniel Ansari. And here is the related article from Education Canada.

The EduGains site includes links to the following video series on LearnTeachLead:

Promising Practices in Mathematics Learning and Teaching
Today, declining mathematics scores is a new challenge that will not wait. In elementary schools across Ontario, educators are responding. Reflected here are the stories of some schools that have seen their mathematics scores move from below the provincial target five years ago, to meeting or exceeding the target five years later.

Click on < Promising Practices in Mathematics Learning and Teaching >
under the School Leader Framework tab Developing the Organization to Support Desired Practices on the Mathematics K-12 website. It includes 5 videos, 3 of which demonstrate the following modules:
  1. Welcoming and inclusive environments
  2. Engaging and inclusive instruction
  3. Leadership for learning
Also from Edugains:

Beyond Pictures, Numbers and Words: A Focus on Multiplication and Division 2015
In this video project, teachers and students in one classroom learn how representations and models can help to build conceptual understandings about multiplication and division. In the “Taking the Learning Home” section, you’ll find clips to support dialogue with parents about how students leverage the relationships they uncover to build fluency with procedures and facts.

Click on < Webcasts / Beyond Pictures, Numbers and Words > in the left menu under the Resource Collection of the Mathematics K-12 website. There are 7 videos in this series.
