Teaching and Learning Mathematics in Saskatchewan:
Converging with Communication
The teaching and learning of mathematics is of interest to a wide variety of individuals and groups. Students, Teachers, Parents, and School Administrators (from both public and private schools) are examples of interested parties. However, other groups, such as the Saskatchewan School Boards Association (SSBA), the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF), and the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society (SMTS) are also interested parties, representing a diversity of individuals. At the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST), the University of Saskatchewan, and the University of Regina, preservice (and inservice) teachers, Faculty and Administration (from a wide range of Colleges and Departments), working groups, and committees are also interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics.
Given the wide range of parties interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics, the SMTS and its Executive is interested in publishing a special issue of The Numerator focusing on the teaching and learning of mathematics in Saskatchewan from the diverse perspectives of theinterested parties. In order to achieve this goal we invite submissions for consideration from any persons interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics. While, as always, we encourage Saskatchewan’s teachers of mathematics as our main contributors, we extend a special invitation to the following: Parents, School Administration, Coordinators, Consultants, Sciematics 2008 Presenters and Attendees, Retired Mathematics Teachers, Home School Mathematics Teachers, Private School Mathematics Teachers, First Nations and Métis Mathematics Teachers, Preschool Mathematics Teachers, Mathematics Tutors, SSBA Members, STF Members, University Faculty, University Administration, Adult Mathematics Educators, SIAST Faculty (and their educational partners), Teacher Candidates, Graduate Students, Mathematicians, and SMTS Executive to submit items for review.
We accept full-length articles and shorter communications. We welcome a wide range of shorter communications: historical communications, challenge problems, calendar events, resources, mathematical games, book reviews, conference activity, tech talk, my teachable moment, inter-provincial news, mathematics in the media, closing the gap (theory v. practice), and lessons learned. The editors will also consider novel contributions on the teaching and learning of mathematics in Saskatchewan and welcome inquiries about possible atypical submissions.
Contributions must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 9, 2009 to be considered for inclusion in the February issue.
