Week of Math and the 12 Days of Tweet-Mas
In 2016, Thames Valley launched the Week of Math: Challenge for All across the district. For years TVDSB has run Junior & Intermediate Math Challenges. However, this year TVDSB shifted to a school-based system to include challenges from early years to Grade 8 to promote equity and engagement across the system.
The Week of Math offers challenging, collaborative, creative, and conceptual mathematics tasks. TVDSB schools buzzed with energy as educators and students took on the challenge and shared the fun on Twitter. Two schools in Tillsonburg Skyped with one another in a shared assembly highlighting their work throughout the week.
In preparation of the 2017 Week of Math, scheduled for the week of March 27, 2017, the Thames Valley mathematics team launched its first 12 Days of #TVDSBMath Tweet-Mas challenges inspiring students, teachers, classrooms, and schools to complete and share daily math challenges and activities.
