Merry Christmas

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very restful break. May you have a restful time and enjoy it with friends and family.

 

To celebrate I thought I would share with you the Symetrees that I found on the walls of Ecole Central and my very own Geometree on my door at Learning Services.

Welcome!

This is the inaugural post of the Math blog!  I am Barb Wagner, Numeracy Support teacher for the School District.  I have taught for a long time in this district and now get to share my math passions with more people.

I thought I would start off with a definition of Numeracy because all our conversations will be centered around numeracy and how to help our students become more numerate.

BC defines it as:

Numeracy is the ability, willingness, and perseverance to interpret and apply mathematical understanding to solve problems in contextualized situations, and to analyze and communicate these solutions in ways relevant to the given context.
