Join Kids Come First for an informative and engaging dialogue with one of Calgary's leading math experts

Most parents envision a future for their child that includes post-secondary education, whether a four-year university degree program, a diploma or a trade. The overwhelming majority of these programs require Grade 12 Math and many also require students to complete additional math courses as part of their program. But are our students ready? What does it mean for our children to be proficient in math? How can we ensure they have the math foundations they need to open the doors to future schooling and careers?

As a math expert and course coordinator for Introductory Calculus, one of the highest-enrolled first year courses at the University of Calgary, Dr. Ryan Hamilton will offer his first-hand perspective on the mathematical readiness of incoming students and the immense challenges many of them face. He will also explore connections with the current K-12 math curriculum currently being reviewed by the province, providing valuable insights for parents with children of any age.

Lisa Davis, founder of Kids Come First and co-author of Math 911 will kick off the evening with introductory remarks.




Dr. Ryan Hamilton holds a Ph.D. in Pure Mathematics from the University of Waterloo and is currently a faculty member at the University of Calgary and Curriculum Lead for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
