Objectives

The workshop will explain to teachers how to organize a SNAP math fair, how some schools have adapted the concept to their particular academic objectives, and provide resources and contacts to help the teachers get started.



A second focus of the workshop will be to brainstorm ways to communicate the concept and benefits of SNAP math fairs to teachers all over the province. A major goal is to have SNAP math fairs incorporated into the writing of the new versions of the LearnAlberta K-9 Program of Studies. There will be time scheduled to discuss this at the proposed BIRS workshop.
