Happy New Year!
Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? Maybe you would like to incorporate number talks on a regular basis in your classroom, learn how to use the activity builder in Desmos, or even simply remember to take some time for yourself during the school year. If you’re looking for some ideas, Saskatoon math teacher Amanda Culver shares her own resolutions in our latest post, “2017 Teaching Resolutions.”
We—that is, the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society and The Variable team—have a resolution, too: to bring you great, relevant content all year round. To ensure that we can continue to do so, we have decided to change our schedule from a monthly to a bi-monthly release. So from now on, you can look forward to a new issue of The Variable every two months, starting with the current issue: January/February, which will be followed by March/April, May/June, July/August, September/October, and November/December. As always, all issues of The Variable will continue to be free to access and download on our website at smts.ca/the-variable/.
Whether you teach in Kindergarten or Grade 12, we hope that you continue find this periodical relevant and valuable for your teaching. If you have any questions or comments about what you read, don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org—we would love to hear your feedback. And if you would like to share your perspectives and experiences with a wider audience—for example, in the form of a lesson, essay, or story—please consider contributing to The Variable (for more information, click here). A New Year’s resolution, perhaps…?
We look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, happy reading!
