Erma Anderson Visits ISM, August 2012

Erma Anderson, Math Consultant from the United States, visited with our ISM faculty from August 28-31, 2012. Erma inspired our teachers to dig deep into inquiry mathematics and truly teach for understanding. She also met with parents to encourage them to support their children at home by asking them to explain their understanding and show their parents how they think the math problems should be done; a definite shift in thinking. Here are some photos of Erma’s time with us.
