TEAMS will be hosting the 2013 OAME Annual Conference. It will be held on May 2 – 4, 2013 at Seneca College, at Finch Ave. & Hwy 404 in Toronto. The theme of the conference will be THINK BIG. For mathematics educators, this aligns with the current research into the BIG IDEAS in mathematics education. In addition, 2013 is the BIG 4-0 anniversary of the OAME conferences, and the conference returns to the BIG CITY of Toronto, for the first time since 2005. We are looking forward to an exciting conference, where everyone is encouraged to THINK BIG. Visit our Website at www.oame2013.ca.
