TVO TeachOntario is honoured to present this livestream webinar: Dr. Chris Suurtamm: Supporting students engaged in Ontario’s new elementary math curriculum  


This session focuses on particular aspects of the new Ontario elementary math curriculum that are most relevant for Grades 6 – 9 and will also inform teachers of grades before and after these years.  It goes beyond presenting new content to also discuss approaches to these topics in ways that support student learning. Dr. Suurtamm will provide practical examples, tips, and resources that can be used both in classrooms and in working with students on an individual basis. Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions.
