PIMS Mathematical Education Circles is a monthly gathering open to all math educators interested in enhancing their teaching practices by sharing opinions and experiences with their peers. Each session is composed of two parts: Topic in Focus – An educational topic related to the practice of teaching mathematics at the senior high school and the university/college first-year levels. Examples include, learning objectives; technology in the math classroom; assessment; managing a diverse math classroom; transition from secondary to university math, etc. The Lighter Side of Mathematics – A mathematical topic or activity that may not be directly related to teaching mathematics, but that may be used in communicating and promoting mathematics. Examples include, puzzles; games; math trivia; hands-on math, etc.
