MathEd Forum
26 Mar 2022 • The Fields Institute – online, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The Fields Institute Mathematics Education Forum promotes discussion of issues in mathematics education at all levels, with special emphasis on education in the Province of Ontario. The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences serves as the host of the Forum, but does not determine the agenda or the conclusions of the Forum. It is the goal of the Forum to consider objectively new ideas and diverse views in mathematics education, to facilitate consensus and to promote the enhancement of mathematics education in Ontario and Canada. The Forum's mandate is to foster the development of new ideas, methodologies and materials with respect to possible changes that could improve education in mathematics, and to work for the implementation of such changes.

Banff Workshop — Teaching First-year University Mathematics Courses: Past, Present, and Future
07 Aug 2022 - 12 Aug 2022 • UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna, B.C., Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
The workshop’s main objective is to generate specific suggestions for possible large-scale modifications to entry-level mathematics curricula in Canadian universities, given the emergence of the new social, economic, and political environment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. These modifications will aim to move us onward toward the creation of a curriculum that is rooted in the modern world, which is robust and flexible, and strongly interconnected in numerous aspects. The ultimate goal of the new curriculum will be to meet the mathematical needs of upcoming generations of undergraduate students. This workshop will be a major event, building on the outcomes of several initiatives, meetings, and documents, most notably the First Year in Maths (FYiMaths) project in Australia, the far reaching 2016 U.S. document “Common Vision for Undergraduate Mathematical Science Programs in 2025,” and the “First-Year University Mathematics in Canada” conferences hosted by the Fields Institute in 2018, the University of Alberta in 2019, and, virtually, at the University of Toronto Mississauga in 2020.
