The MAC2 Fall MiniConference will held Wednesday October 26th, 2016 in Barrie / Orillia / Bracebridge. All three locations will be connected via the web, and take part in an interactive workshop after pizza is served. (exact locations and addresses at bottom of this page)

The guest speaker will be Gianna Helling, previously an administrator with TCDSB, is now a Student Achievement Officer with the Ministry of Education.

In her role as an administrator she inspired students and teachers to think about mathematics creatively to see math as a broad, interesting and visual subject that involves deep thinking. She instilled a growth mindset in her students to help them feel confident, try harder all year, persist with open and difficult problems and embrace mistakes and challenges.

Join MAC2 as we focus on the ways that technology can enhance attitudes towards and understanding of mathematics with Gianna Helling. The Bracebridge and Orillia sites will be connected via the web to Barrie where Gianna will be delivering the workshop in person. All three sites will have interactive activities for all participants.

Dinner included for only $10 for members and $15 for non-members
