Welcome to mathematics educators in the Toronto area. Now in its 25th year, 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 central and west parts of 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 Dante Alighieri Catholic Academy on October 27, 2016. The theme was”Interactive Math”, and we had a full complement of workshops for educators at all grade levels. We are looking forward to hosting the next TEAMS conference in the fall of 2017.
Our local Math Olympics was held at Madonna CSS on April 2, 2016, and was an overwhelming success, with about 80 participants from grade 7 and 8 from across Toronto. The 2016 Ontario Math Olympics were held in Scarborough on May 27 & 28. TEAMS sent 3 teams of grade 7 & 8 students to this event and our Team #1 won the pairs event. The 2017 TEAMS Math Olympics will be held on April 1, 2017, while the Ontario Math Olympics will be in Toronto on May 26 & 27, 2017.
The 2017 OAME annual conference will be held at St. Lawrence College in Kingston on May 11 – 13. The theme will be “And Now for Something Completely Different”.
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.
