AQJM and SMAC invite you to the second English edition of AmazingMaths for elementary and secondary school. Using Mathemagic as an entry point, the activites introduce mathematics in a playful and accessible way for all students, and during the whole year. The website will be ready at the beginning of November, in time for the AmazingMaths week, which is being held from November 26 to 30, 2018. The website will be available all year and we hope that you will use it throughout the year!

With the help of teachers and educational consultants at the elementary and secondary levels in many school districts, AQJM has continued the work undertaken with the collaboration of SMAC (www.smac.ulaval.ca) in 2014, 2015, 2016 and in 2017. Many new magic tricks and puzzles videos are available in French on the website www.semainedesmaths.ulaval.ca for teachers, students and even general public, and,for the first time, some are available in English this year. (We will continue our work to make them more fully available in English next year.) Used as an introduction, our videos aim to stimulate students' curiosity, get them to observe more carefully while trying to understand what is "problematic", and ultimately really get involved in problem solving.

To help teachers, each video is accompanied by both an explanation and a planning document. The explanation enables teachers to reproduce the trick and understand why it works. The planning document may help to prepare the activity while specifying which concepts and competencies are covered. All activities are related to the curriculum.

On this website you will find in English for the 2017-2018 edition

If this is your first visit, please go to our "First Visit" web page in the elementary or secondary sections to help plan your week and have more information on our activities.

We encourage you to take part in the AmazingMaths week in November and enjoy mathematical activities with your students! You could also use this opportunity to organize a tournament (chess, board games, Rubik cube resolution, etc.) or to plan activities with other teachers.
