Learning Network
Numeracy Consultant
Keith Van De Keere believes that when math teaching is focused on deep understanding of the big ideas, students have a better chance of experiencing enduring success, and teachers can better see the natural flow between teaching and assessment. To promote and support this kind of teaching, Keith works with K - 9 classroom teachers to enrich their lessons by making the focus more about getting students to investigate math Big Ideas. The goal of lessons is understanding and improving number sense and developing mathematical thinking rather than just telling and showing ways to get answers. Lessons are infused with visual and tangible experiences. Students and teachers are immersed in a context or model where it is easy to talk about the math rather than just the answers. They use that model or context to represent and then solve problems and stay in context to confirm that their solution paths make sense. The goal is to help kids see and analyze the math in action. Keith has worked with Dr. Cathy Fosnot, who is a North American leader in constructivist learning and in changing the culture of math classrooms. In doing so, he has worked with K - 9 teachers and school divisions in Ontario, Manitoba, San Francisco and Hartford but does the majority of his work supporting teachers in north central Alberta.
