National Educational Fora
The Canadian Mathematical Society will hold a
national educational forum in Montreal on May 16-18 2003 in UQAM (Montreal).
This forum will be followed by a second one in Ontario in 2004.
These meetings will bring together about 200
people from all provinces and territories representing the different groups
with interest in and impact on mathematical education in middle and high school
The first meeting will be an opportunity to
compare issues and best practices across the country. It should also identify
those issues on which subgroups can prepare more detailed findings to be
presented at the second meeting. These findings should be published both
electronically and in print and should be distributed widely.
Local organizing committee:
Pierre Bouchard (firstname.lastname@example.org),
Manzoor Ahmad (email@example.com),
Département de Mathématiques, UQAM.
There will be translation for the plenary activities (panels, plenary lectures and
presentations). The working groups will be held in French or English, or even
be bilingual if some participants prefer.
