Our programs respond to the need for practical and enrichment information that can be implemented immediately in the classroom. This August, we offer a three-‐day conference, with focus on curriculum, educational technology, extensions and enrichment aimed at university preparation. The sessions on curriculum will focus on problem solving at the academic level. This conference will increase your tools and skills and enhance your teaching of mathematics. While the curriculum sessions are directed specifically at teachers from Ontario, teachers from any province or country will benefit. This conference attracts teachers from all over the world and offers an excellent opportunity to meet and exchange ideas. Teachers should have some previous teaching experience in an elementary or high school. Whatever your personal, professional or mathematical goals, our conference can give you the edge you want. Tuesday, August 25 to Thursday August 27, 2015 (Limited enrolment so it is better to register early) Participant cost of $150 includes accommodation, meals and conference materials Participation is restricted to two teachers per school Accommodation in a dormitory room is provided at no additional cost, if needed Registration Now Open!
