arranged a list of Fall Convocation graduates who have special stories to
9:30 a.m. Sunday, October 22 Convocation Ceremony
Mount Saint Vincent University’s MEd math students proved they know how to
The first-ever MEd (Elementary and Middle School Education) with a specialty
in Mathematics cohort experienced a mini baby boom during the two-year
program. While learning new strategies about how to help students understand
mathematics, the cohort’s numbers outside the classroom increased. MSVU
Associate Professor Genevičve Boulet suggested this may "add up" to the fact
a baby was always present in the classroom.
The new MEds will bring their new appreciation and insight about mathematics
back to their classrooms and workplaces, to help primary to Grade 9 students
learn what’s behind how they do the math.
The Master of Education (Elementary and Middle School Education) with a
specialty in Mathematics degree was developed by MSVU faculty to help
improve math understanding. After this experience, MSVU has decided to add
to its offerings by extending this program to include Grades 9 to 12. The
first cohort in the newly-extended master's degree began this past July.
And the babies… two more are on the way.
