Making Grade 9 Math Tasks Contextual

Ontario Association of Mathematics Educators (OAME) 2016

May 6th, 2016

Co-presented by: Jon Orr and Kyle Pearce

Embark on a journey to experience lessons that are digital in nature, but promote collaboration instead of isolation, and curiosity instead of acceptance. 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.
