SUM Conference

Join us on October 23 – 24, 2017 in Saskatoon for two days packed with professional learning opportunities!

This year, the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society, the Saskatchewan Educational Leadership Unit and the Saskatchewan Professional Development Unit are partnering to co-ordinate a province-wide conference to explore and exchange ideas and practices about the teaching and learning of mathematics. The Saskatchewan Understands Math (SUM) conference is for mathematics educators teaching in Grades K-12 and all levels of educational leadership who support curriculum, instruction, number sense, problem-solving, culturally responsive teaching, and technology integration, and will bring together international and local facilitators to work in meaningful ways with participants in a variety of formats.

This year, SUM is proud to welcome keynote speakers Steve Leinwand of the American Institutes for Research and Lisa Lunney-Borden of St. Francis Xavier University, and featured presenters Kristin Gray (Cape Henlopen School District, Illustrative Mathematics), Glenn Waddell (University of Reno, Desmos Fellow), Egan Chernoff (University of Saskatchewan), and Gale Russell (University of Regina).
