Manipulating Mathematical Thinking with Technology (M2T2) - Partnership Overview


Manipulating Mathematical Thinking with Technology (M2T2) - Infusing Technology
Through this presentation we will provide an overview of a partnership between classrooms in various boards that worked together to create a student collaborative digital space promoting students’ cognitive engagement in mathematics. Students were able to provide detailed descriptive feedback, ask higher level questions and motivate each other in many ways. We will explore various free tool technologies that were naturally embedded in the instructional design and allowed students to deepen their problem solving, communication and digital literacy skills. Teachers who participated in the partnership will have an opportunity to share their experiences with us via Google Hangout.

The three follow up sessions will detail steps educators can take to naturally contextualize technologies in mathematics in order to create connected classrooms. BYOD for the full experience!


As a novice or a tech-savvy educator, we will provide steps you can take to contextualize tool technologies in your mathematics instructional design. These strategies will deepen students’ ability to think critically as they participate as knowledgeable, reflective, creative and analytical members of a collaborative digital space. We will show how technology for instruction and assessment was used in our partnership project where students were part of a learning community to discover, explore, and conjecture about mathematical ideas collaboratively and cross-culturally.

Some Big Ideas
About Measurement
These sessions support teachers of JK-5, 6-9 & 10-12
to use effective strategies and activities that allow
students to develop a conceptual understanding of
measurement and hence not overly rely on formulas.

How can I Build Mathematical Mindsets through Assessments of Conversation and Observation?
Balanced assessments include conversation, observation and product. Come to this session to learn more about how to use conversations and observations to assess student mathematics and build positive mathematical Mindsets. Participants will leave with classroom tested strategies and materials.

Balanced Mathematics
Balanced Mathematics is a differentiated instructional framework designed to promote positive math mindsets in our students and to develop their thinking and communication skills. This session will introduce you to the components of the Balanced Math framework, including guided math, shared problem solving, math journals, independent problem solving, math games and math facts. Sample learning goals, success criteria, assessments, rotations and adaptations for the Primary through Intermediate divisions will be shared. This work is a culmination of the Ministry of Education’s Teacher Learning and Leadership Program (TLLP) and the Provincial Knowledge Exchange (PKE).
