A Research-Practice Collaboration – Concordia University and the Lester B Pearson School Board

By The AIM Collective

The AIM Collective is a partnership initiative designed to engage researchers and educators from school districts across Canada to support the development of tools for assessment and instruction in mathematics learning in those formative years: kindergarten through grade 3. On May 2nd and 3rd, AIM investigators, led by Dr. Rebecca Merkley from Carleton University hosted a summit that brought together members of the collective: educators, researchers, and students. The Summit was an important step in building connections to support co-creation of meaningful research and useful tools for students’ math learning.

Host Patrick McLeod is joined by Julie Houle (Math Consultant, Lester B Pearson Board) and Dr. Helena Osana (Concordia University Research Chair in Mathematical Cognition and Instruction) to talk about their collaborative work on the Early Numeracy Partnership.

Their project was funded by a Partnership Engage Grant from a government research council with the goal of enhancing the mathematical success of kindergarten students in the Lester B Pearson Board.
