Banff International Research Station (BIRS)

Description: 

A SNAP math fair is a non-competitive event that gives teachers an opportunity to have their students do problem solving with a particular goal in mind. The math fair can be adapted to almost any curriculum and set of standards, and has been shown to motivate and inspire all students. The workshop will explain to teachers how to organize a SNAP math fair, how some schools have adapted the concept to their particular academic objectives, and provides resources and contacts to help the teachers get started.
