Faculty Researchers Participate in EOSDN Mathematics Project

During the 2013-2014 year, the Ontario Ministry of Education funded the K-12 Eastern Ontario Staff Development Network (EOSDN) Mathematics Project. This opportunity has enabled the nine eastern Ontario district school boards to network across the region and within their districts with a collective focus on proportional reasoning, educator fluency, and the process of representation in the area of math. System math leaders from each district school board met on a monthly basis as a Steering Committee to learn more about strategic implementation and monitoring with support from recognized experts in the teaching of math, Queen’s University researcher partners (Drs. Don Klinger and Chris DeLuca, and PhD candidate Danielle LaPointe), Ministry of Education Student Achievement Officers, and an EQAO School Support and Outreach Education Officer. The project has received additional funding to continue in the 2014-2015 year.

EOSDN Math Project Coordinator Tammy Billen and Danielle LaPointe recently collaborated to publish an article in Leaders and Learners (Winter 2014/2015), sharing their learning from the first year of the project.

Congratulations Danielle!
