The 2014 Canadian Mathematics Education Forum will be held in Ottawa, Ontario, from Thursday May 1st to Sunday May 4th, at the Faculty of Education (University of Ottawa).

Conference participants will walk away with a rich collection of mathematical activities and resources, at all levels from elementary to post-secondary. In addition, conference participants will take part in rich dialogues concerning the current tensions in education, and be inspired by speakers who have stretched the boundaries of mathematics education in Canada as they share how their pedagogical innovations have successfully reached the students of this generation.

The CMEF previously met in 2009 (Vancouver), in 2005 (Toronto), in 2003 (Montreal) and in 1995 (Quebec City). While each forum has a different format, the purpose of the CMEF is to bring together from all parts of Canada, a full spectrum of participants who share a concern and a passion for mathematics education: elementary school teachers, high school teachers, school board coordinators, college and university mathematicians and math educators, graduate students, and representatives from government and publishing.

CMEF 2014 is based on a vision of having teachers share vignettes with other teachers and expects approximately 120 to 150 participants.

Thank you and we hope to see you in Ottawa!

Plenary Speakers

France Caron (Université de Montréal)
