The 2017 RMS Spring Symposium was held on May 16th-18th, 2017, and provided board and school teams with an opportunity to:

  • reflect on the implementation and monitoring of the first year of the Renewed Mathematics Strategy (RMS);
  • learn from the experiences of others across the province; and
  • explore processes and structures in preparation for the 2017-2018 school year.

Key Objectives of the Renewed Mathematics Strategy:

  1. increased student achievement, well-being and engagement in mathematics;
  2. increased educator math knowledge and pedagogical expertise;
  3. increased leader use of knowledge of effective mathematics pedagogy to provide the necessary supports and conditions for school and system improvement;
  4. increased parent engagement in their children’s mathematics learning.
