Math and Comp. Sci. High School Teachers’ Workshop

 Today I was honored to be one of the speakers at the Math and Comp. Sci. High School Teachers’ Workshop at the University of Toronto at Mississauga.

I was speaking about methodology of history of mathematics, math education reforms in the US and in the USSR and various ideas that modern teachers can  draw from them and successfully use in the modern classroom.

I could not only attend one other talk –  Nifty Computer Science Assignments by Daniel Zingaro – and it was a great! We learned about various ideas for assignments that stimulate the students to go above and beyond the course content.
