Math is more than memorizing formulas and doing calculations. Math involves:

  • Highly practical and hands-on problems and skills
  • Rich problem-solving activities in collaboration with your peers
  • Some problems that will stretch your understanding to the abstract and theoretical
  • Using technology to develop, demonstrate and communicate your mathematical understandings

Students at Vincent Massey will participate in mathematics on a daily basis.  Mathematics teachers work diligently to prepare students to be engaged thinkers who employ mathematical literacy to solve problems of varying levels of complexity and make connections between the classroom and the real world.  Students have access to multi grade Problems of the Week https://www.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/resources/potw.php

published by the University of Waterloo which allows for application and extension of critical problem-solving skills.  
Students at Vincent Massey are also involved in the Gauss Math Contest and the Pascal Math Contest which allows them to have fun while developing their problem solving ability.  In addition to math contests, we also have a variety of clubs at school which tap into mathematics, such as the chess club.
