MASTER of EDUCATION, MATHEMATICS - prepare for professional and leadership roles - fully online, 2-year program
I spend 50-60 days each year in elementary school classrooms, collaborating with teachers to design cool ways of engaging young children with big math ideas. My work is in mathematics + technology + the arts.
I am currently collaborating with Marcelo Borba (UNESP, Brazil), Chantal Buteau (Brock), Janette Hughes (UOIT), Steven Khan (Brock), Miroslav Lovric (McMaster), Ami Mamolo (UOIT), Immaculate Namukasa (UWO), Donna Kotsopoulos (WLU), and Ricardo Scucuglia (UNESP, Brazil), Nathalie Sinclair (SFU), & Peter Taylor (Queen's).
