The Art & Science of Math Education

The Art & Science of Math Education
Ottawa, November 2016

The Art & Science of Math Education, hosted on November 25th, 2016 in Ottawa, provided an opportunity for educators, administrators, policy-makers, and researchers to share best practices around critical issues in math education. JUMP Math co-hosted the conference with educational partners including Community Foundation of Ottawa, Carleton University, Algonquin College, and the University of Ottawa. This specific meeting of minds triggered an exciting day focused on the most effective, evidence-based methods for strengthening numeracy in Canada.

What did we hope educators would take away from the day?

We've posted all five video clips on JUMP Math’s YouTube channel, including interviews with conference partners Bibi Patel and Monica Nevins, Indspire Vice-President of Education Sonia Prevost-Derbecker, and researchers Dr. Daniel Ansari and Dr. Brent Davis.
