Feedback form is now closed.
The Math Minds Initiative has been working with Calgary and area teachers since 2012 to develop an effective model for teaching math that addresses the varied needs of learners. The "RaPID model" that emerged from this work draws from the insights of both traditional and reform approaches to math education, but it also diverges significantly from both. In particular, the RaPID model insists on clearly raveled mathematical content and the use of effective patterns of variation to draw attention to important mathematical ideas and relationships. In this session, you will have the opportunity to experience the power of effective variation to prompt attention to familiar ideas in new ways.
