Engaging Math (Ontario)

“Over the past few years we have been developing activities for grades 7-12 math in our travels around our school board. We have finally decided to try to share them on this blog. All of the activities are matched to Ontario Math Curriculum and can be searched via the blog search field or the labels listed on the right hand side [at this page]”.

Thanks, Gisele & David

Ontario Math Links

“Over the years I have been collecting links that relate to mathematics and sharing them within my school board. A few years ago I started adding them to a social bookmarking site... Somewhere along the way I started to just create these weekly math links that I found emails to my school board and over the last couple of years started to turn those emails into blog posts.

One thing of note, I teach in Ontario, Canada. So all of the curriculum tags I use refer specifically to our math courses. Sorry about that rest of world. That being said, I make a point to share a lot of what math teachers in Ontario are doing and the good news is that more and more of them are starting to share online.”
