On April 4th, second year Master of Arts in Child Study and Education (MA CSE) teacher candidates presented their final Mathematics Inquiry Projects at the Robertson Program’s 4th bi-annual math mini-conference. The Robertson Program at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study hosted teachers, principals and professors from across Toronto and York Region at a morning of math learning. Educators took part in six 20-minute interactive math workshops (see topics below). This event allowed students to authentically disseminate their work and inspire educators in the field. In addition, students received helpful feedback from practicing educators about ways to adapt to their ideas to different contexts. This iterative process of teaching and learning encouraged students and educators to connect and learn new things.
You can read the handouts for each project on our Exploring math concepts through an inquiry lens page.
We appreciate and thank everyone who attended this conference. A special thank you to all second-year MA CSE teacher candidates who worked tirelessly researching and passionately designing workshops to better the education for all children.
