Marian Small is a leading Canadian mathematics educator and a regular speaker on K–12 mathematics throughout Canada and the US. Marian is the former Dean of Education at the University of New Brunswick, and has been a classroom teacher and professor of mathematics education for over 30 years. Marian is internationally renowned. She has been very involved in the development of curriculum and text materials for students and teachers of mathematics, authoring seven text series at both elementary and secondary levels in Canada, the US, Australia, and the country of Bhutan.

She has been a senior author on five of those series including the most recent Nelson Education math texts, K–12. She has served on the author team for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Navigation series, Pre-K–2 and, for four years, as the NCTM representative on the Mathcounts question writing  committee for middle school mathematics competitions throughout the US. She is also a member of the editorial panel for the NCTM 2011 yearbook on motivation and disposition.

A few years ago, Marian led a groundbreaking research study in Canada which resulted in the creation of maps that describe students’ mathematical development in each of the five mathematical strands. This forms the basis for her professional development program, PRIME. Marian is currently involved in many coaching initiatives, co-planning and co-teaching lessons with teachers across Canada with a focus on supporting struggling learners, differentiating instruction, and on teacher questioning in mathematics classrooms.
