Objectives

This is the fifth annual math fair workshop in BIRS.

The workshop is extremely popular with teachers, provides them with resources for their courses, and it is helping to reshape the way mathematics is being approached in the schools. This is not limited to Alberta schools and the math fair idea is now spreading around the world. Nevertheless people in the rest of Canada and other countries are looking for us for leadership. To have teachers share their valuable experiences with math fair in their own schools is the best and most useful information to the other teachers.

Teachers in Alberta and participants from outside view the BIRS math fair workshop as one of the PIMS and BIRS most valuable education initiatives.
