Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "First Year Mathematics Repository Workshop" workshop in Banff from February 8, 2019 to February 10, 2019.


This workshop represents the crucial step in further promotion and development of The First Year Mathematics Courses Repository, a resource supporting an ongoing national dialogue about teaching first year mathematics at Canadian universities. This shareable dynamic online database contains extensive data collected from mathematics instructors across the country. Data includes course content, resource and technology used, learning outcomes, modes of delivery, connections with other courses, as well as informal descriptions of various practices in teaching these courses


The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
