Hi and welcome to my blog! My name is **Carollee Norris** and **I am passionate about mathematics education!** I believe deeply that students need to encounter mathematics in a way that allows them to make sense of it, to understand concepts, to manipulate numbers freely. I want students (and teachers) to love mathematics as much as I do, and that happens when they really get to get “messy” with the math.

After being first a classroom teacher and then the **Numeracy Support Teacher** for SD#60 in Fort St. John, BC, Canada, I am now a Mathematics Education Consultant working out of Comox, BC. I have been a sessional instructor for Simon Fraser University (SFU) teaching Designs for Learning Mathematics: Elementary. I served on the executive of the BC Association of Mathematics Teachers (**BCAMT**) for many years and present frequently at conferences and workshops around the province and in the US.

I hope you find some of my ideas interesting and useful, and I would love to hear from you! (My email address is carolleenorris@gmail.com)

Mathematically yours,

Carollee

Hiya! Happy New Year 🙂

Besides the long winded KeyMath screener have you ever heard of the screener “Leaps and Bounds”? It’s also available in French…

Hi Johanne, and Happy New Year to you, too!

Leaps and Bounds, published by Nelson, should be a great intervention program! Although I have not looked at it in depth, I know the main author, Marian Small, by reputation. I use a number of her books. I can guarantee anything with her name on it will be top-notch!

Hi Carollee! It’s Johanne from Grande Prairie 🙂 Do you have some interesting thoughts and/or links that talk about “Quick Draws”?
