Welcome to a math teacher blogging about life in a pandemic. That's about all you'll get on this blog these days. (I still do weekly journalling, but see no point posting it.)
This is the second of two PD posts; the first was Boardwide PD of April 23, 2021. This time I will discuss the OAME Math Conference, during the week of May 17th, 2021. The current pandemic meant that both events were fully remote (in fact all teaching in Ontario was remote following the "April Break", moved from March).

Earlier in 2021 I'd hesitated on signing up at all (and see last year's OAME post for how I hadn't planned on going to 2020) but since the virtual conference hours were 4-9pm, with a session at 8pm (after the little one had gone to bed), I decided to at least take in evening sessions. Perhaps the blinders were on in late March?
OAME: MON & TUES
|Experimental Probability: Random Art Types #1-4|
First assignment was parabolas & texture (not Desmos, though that's another idea), then exponentials & fractals, then lines & patterns (find slope to create good symmetry), then design & 3D printing (for surface area and trigonometry). Photography can also link with trigonometry and contrast. Of note, 10P and 11C have perspective drawing in the course.
