Promoting innovation in math education
OCMA Winter PD - February 29th
You're invited to an online PD event on
Supporting Pathways for Students with
College and School Board Partnerships
How often do professors, coordinators, and administrators at your college talk to high school colleagues about math or numeracy? The OCMA hopes that the partnership highlighted in this PD session will inspire similar discussions between your college and local school boards.
Robb Caporicci and Leeat Cribbs will share the planned five-year pathway plan for Mathematics in the Thames Valley District School Board, which covers Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford counties, as well as the City of London. Specifically, the presentation will focus on the Grades 9 and 10 math recommended pathways, which help to ensure students are prepared for all post-secondary opportunities after leaving high school.
In addition, Krista Vogt will be joining the presentation to talk about Fanshawe College's ongoing partnership with the board. Krista will share the potential changes Fanshawe expects to make to admission requirements over the next five years.
