Welcome to mathematics educators in the Toronto area. The Toronto Educators Association for Mathematics (TEAMS) is a Toronto chapter of the Ontario Association for Mathematics Education (OAME). Officially, we represent mathematics educators in the TDSB from the former Toronto, Etobicoke, East York and York Boards of Education, the TCDSB, University of Toronto and George Brown College, but educators are free to choose the OAME chapter to which they belong.
Our organization promotes mathematics education by organizing annual conferences for mathematics educators, holding our local TEAMS Math Olympics for grade 7 & 8 students, where the winners move on to the Ontario Math Olympics, to communicate with our members on issues in mathematics education, and to provide resources to teachers of mathematics in all grades.
We held a very successful conference at Don Mills C.I. on October 23, 2013. Our next conference will be held at John Polanyi C.I. on October 23, 2014.
Our local Math Olympics was held at the TCDSB Catholic Education Centre on April 5, 2014, and was an overwhelming success, with about 100 participants from grade 7 and 8 from across Toronto. The 2015 Ontario Math Olympics are being held in Ottawa on June 5 & 6. TEAMS will be sending 3 teams of grade 7 & 8 students to this event.
The 2015 OAME annual conference will be held at Humber College North Campus on May 7 – 9, 2015. The theme will be Building Mathematical mindsets.
Members and non-members alike are welcome to take part in our activities. Members receive a discount at all of our local conferences, a discount at OAME conferences, email newsletters from TEAMS and OAME, and a quarterly magazine from OAME. Consider joining TEAMS and benefit from all we have to offer.
Congratulations to our very own Wayne Erdman who was awarded the OAME Life Membership Award in May, 2014 for his outstanding contributions to mathematics education and OAME.
