Grade 9 has always been my favourite year to teach. Coming to a new school, being in classes with students from other elementary schools, meeting new teachers … and this year having a new curriculum for all students … are a new start, a new opportunity to get excited about mathematics.
Each new school year is a chance to do better for our students and I am looking forward to at least occasionally co-teaching in a grade 9 classroom.
The curriculum addition of coding, tell a story, and a few big math ideas, opens new windows to see, teach and learn mathematics with surprise, insight and mathematical wonder. See this brief paper.
I have worked extensively in Ontario classrooms for many years, for outreach and for research, as well as a mathematics and computer science teacher, mathematics department head when Grade 9 was last destreamed, and district-wide mathematics consultant.
Some other experiences with Grade 9 mathematics: advisor to the Ontario Grade 9 curriculum writing team and lead for the background research for the Ontario Secondary School Reform.
