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 Dante Alighieri Catholic Academy on November 3, 2011. Our next conference will be held at John Polanyi C.I. (tentative) on October 18, 2012.
Our local Math Olympics was held at Madonna Catholic Secondary School on April 21, 2012, and was an overwhelming success, with about 120 participants from grade 7 and 8 from across Toronto. The Ontario Math Olympics are being held in Windsor this year. TEAMS will be sending 3 teams of grade 7 & 8 students to this event.
TEAMS will be the host chapter of the OAME annual conference in May, 2013. It will be held at Seneca College, Newnham Campus, at Finch & Don Mills in Toronto.
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 Pat Margerm who was awarded the OAME Award for Leadership in Mathematics Education. Way to go Pat!
