Event description
A look at the past 150 years in Ontario math curriculum

About this Event

Mathematics in education has had its purpose questioned, its method of instruction debated, and its effectiveness tested in many different ways. In fact it may be one of the most hotly debated subjects in schools. In this talk we take a look at the past 150 years in Ontario math curriculum and investigate some of the thoughts, ideas, reports, and proposals that have brought us to where we are now in our math curriculum. While it by no means captures all the debates and changes from the past 150 years, I hope to give a general overview of some of the discussions that have taken place around this subject so that we may better understand where we are now, and gain a glimpse of an idea of where we could go in future.

With over 20 years of experience in the STEM Education field, to say Pamela Brittain is passionate about math and science would be an understatement. With a Masters in Mathematics for Teachers and a recently completed PhD thesis on “Addressing math content knowledge and math anxiety in a teacher education program” she has spent years seeking to understanding this rich, and often misunderstood, subject. As part of her mission to address math anxiety she has also written and illustrated a children’s book that aims to inspire children to see math in the world around them by following the adventures of her dog Alpha.
