Making Grade 9 Math Tasks Contextual


Ontario Association of Mathematics Educators (OAME) 2016

May 6th, 2016

Co-presented by: Jon Orr and Kyle Pearce

Break away from direct instruction and empower students with resources that “uncover” curriculum instead of “cover” curriculum. This session will focus on making grade 9 math tasks contextual, visual and concrete to leverage the natural curiosity of our students through the use of iPads, iBooks and iTunes U.
