Regional Recipient

Stephen Taylor

Stephen Taylor wants to invoke a higher order of thinking skill in his mathematics students at J.N. Burnett Junior Secondary School in Richmond, British Columbia. Every week, he gives students a word problem that can be solved in several ways. This not only encourages students to approach problems from different angles, but also builds communication skills. Mr. Taylor's problem-solving approach has now permeated the school's entire mathematics department.
