The Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society objectives – as outlined in the January 1979 SMTS Newsletter – include:
- To improve practice in mathematics by increasing members’ knowledge and understanding.
- To act as a clearinghouse for ideas and as a source of information of trends and new ideas.
- To furnish recommendations and advice to the STF executive and to its committees on matters affecting mathematics.
vinculum’s main objective is to provide a venue for SMTS objectives, as mentioned above, to be met. Given the wide range of parties interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics, we invite submissions for consideration from any persons interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics. However, and as always, we encourage Saskatchewan’s teachers of mathematics as our main contributors. vinculum, which is published by the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation, accepts both full-length Articles and (a wide range of) shorter Conversations.
vinculum was edited by Dr. Egan Chernoff from 2009-2014.
Please note that the publication of vinculum is currently on hiatus. However, the SMTS is actively publishing and accepting contributions for its monthly periodical, The Variable: Head to http://smts.ca/the-variable/ for past issues and details about submission.
