Math on the Move  [PDF]

Math on the Move is an initiative at the University of Regina to deliver inquirybased mathematics activities at the grade 9/10 levels to schools outside the major urban centres. Designed and delivered by university mathematics education students, the activities are closely tied to Saskatchewan curriculum outcomes and model strategies for teaching and learning through inquiry. This year, we have increased the number of schools visited, focusing in particular on schools with a large Aboriginal student population. Plans are underway to make the activities available to others who may be interested in organizing a similar outreach educational initiative in their own communities.

In this session, the two Faculty members initiating the project (one from the Faculty of Education and one from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Regina) will provide the audience with example activities and outline their future plans for Math on the Move.
