Periodical header v2

This one’s for you, Saskatchewan math teachers!

The Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society is pleased to present The Variable: A new monthly periodical by the SMTS featuring articles, interviews, information about professional development opportunities, mathematical challenges, and other writings of interest to elementary and secondary teachers of mathematics (and all who are passionate, or even simply curious about mathematics education). We welcome a variety of contributions by mathematics educators at all levels – elementary, secondary, and higher – as well as by students. Find our first issue here!

Many of the articles within The Variable will have been posted on our website – in particular, those from our monthly columns: Problems to Ponder, Spotlight on the Profession, Reflections, and Intersections. If you missed them when they were posted, this is a great way to catch up. However, you will also find new content that will not appear elsewhere on this site.

We hope that you find this periodical interesting and valuable for your teaching or personal interest. If you have any questions or comments about what you read, don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing us at We also welcome you to contact us if you are interested in contributing to The Variable by sharing a lesson plan, a reflection on teaching, a book review, or any other piece; we are also looking for student contributions, including articles, stories, and artwork.

Happy reading!
