Math on the Move is an initiative at the University of Regina to deliver inquiry-based mathematics activities at the grade 9/10 levels to schools throughout Saskatchewan, outside the major urban centres. Designed and delivered by university mathematics education students, the activities are closely tied to Saskatchewan curriculum outcomes and model strategies for teaching and learning mathematics through inquiry. This year, we have visited approximately ten schools, focusing in particular on schools with a large Aboriginal student population.
