Regional Recipient

Walter Howard

Walter Howard, the recently retired head of mathematics at Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto, didn't want his students to fail at university. So he decided to give them university-level challenges in high school. The result was Jarvis' "double math" and "triple math" programs, which integrate two or three OAC-level mathematics courses into one class. Students take rigorous exams, and Mr. Howard helps them develop strong study habits. As a result, many go on to excel in mathematics at university.
