Back in Northwestern Ontario!

Continuing to build friendships and math ideas with the RRDSB – February 9 – 12, 2015

As part of our ongoing partnership with the Rainy River District School Board, the Jackman ICS and Robertson team from OISE spent February 9 – 12 working with amazing educators from Mine Centre P.S., Crossroads P.S., Robert Moore P.S., J.W. Walker P.S. and Riverview P.S. During our time together, we tried out many spatial reasoning activities then tested them out with K-3 children in classrooms. We then reflected, revised and co-designed further math activities.

We also had the opportunity to share last year’s exciting research results with educational councillors and/or Elders from Seine River FNNigigoonsiminikaaning FN and Naicatchewenin FN – more on this later.

New and old friends gathered for our last night together. We had an impromptu dinner at La Place Rendezvous.

Working with educators and students from Mikinaak Onigaming School – February 2 – 5, 2015

As part of our ongoing partnership with Seven Generations Education Institute, the Robertson team worked with a dynamic group of educators and students from the Mikinaak Onigaming School to create new ways of learning and teaching geometry.

Our collaboration led to an exciting Family Math Night held in the school’s gymnasium on February 4.

Looking forward to our next trip,

Dr. Bev Caswell
