Participant Testimonials

Apr 21 - Apr 23, 2017

The workshop was very refreshing, motivating and engaging. I had fun learning how to incorporate and differentiate a vast amount of puzzles and logic games in my classroom. In addition, it shifted my way of thinking for developing mathematics skills and perseverance with my students. Overall, I could not have asked for a better weekend of learning and professional development.

The SNAP workshop is a great way to collaborate with colleagues who have similar teaching styles and philosophies. I had the opportunity to share my expertise and hear from several others who have put on Math Fairs at their schools. I always have come away from this conference with new problem solving and game ideas to share with my students and staff.

I was really impressed with all the presentations that the great speakers presented. I have some background of those activities and this SNAP MATH workshop put me into the next level. My knowledge of Physical Literacy activities will be integrated with SNAP Math activities in order to encourage children and youth to be active in the community and in the school as well. I am grateful to the BIRS for this wonderful workshop and wonderful host.
