The SMTS is very excited to announce our confirmed conference lineup for SUM v2.0, happening in November of this year. We hope that the shift in dates helps teachers access funding, as well as provide support to teachers earlier in the year.
There is a new math camp starting in Saskatoon:
Extreme Math Camp 2014 will be held on Thursday and Friday, June 26 and June 27 at Walter Murray Collegiate in Saskatoon. The camp is designed to mathematically challenge able students in grades 7 to 10 who have an interest in mathematical problem solving. We will have presenters from the University of Waterloo, University of Saskatchewan and elsewhere leading four sessions each day with students split into a junior group (typically grades 7 and 8) and a senior group (typically grades 9 and 10).
The fee for the camp is $50 for students from outside of Saskatoon. This covers tuition for the two days, snacks, a t-shirt, and prizes. We are able to keep the fee this low due to the generous support of the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society and the University of Waterloo. Last year we had 40 students attend the first Extreme Math Camp and the participants were very enthusiastic about their experience.
I am hoping that you could pass this information on to students that you think might benefit from the math camp. The camp is strictly a day camp, so no meals or accommodation is provided.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me.
The registration form can be found here.

Here are Steve Leinwand’s presentations from SUM:
Do you know any innovative math teachers? How about any teachers who inspire students and teachers alike? If you think that person deserves to be recognized then take a moment to read through the descriptions and then nominate one or more of your colleagues. We’re also working to round out our history of past winners; if you know of a past winner who is not on our list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations for 2014 are due by April 11.
