MONTREAL, Feb. 2014 / CNW Telbec / - The Federation of Private Educational Institutions is proud to be a partner of the first Quebec Math Day, on March 14. The Federation promotes this event to its members and works with the organizers to seize this opportunity to spread the passion for math to young people. Inspired by World Math Day, the first Quebec Math Day is a great opportunity to celebrate the success of young Quebecers in mathematics who rank among the best in the world in international tests (PISA).

This gigantic mathematical game, under the honorary presidency of Jean-Marie De Koninck, will bring together students from across Quebec from the 5e primary year to 4e secondary year inclusive. Students will play online on the Netmaths web platform (www.netmaths.net). One student and one class per level will receive a symbolic prize and a school in Quebec will win the 2014 Math Day banner that it can proudly display inside its walls!

“Math plays a key role in our everyday life. Whether it is to manage your personal finances, negotiate a lease or a mortgage, carry out renovations, find your way around IT, start a business or pursue higher education, a solid foundation in math is essential, ”explains Jean-Marc St -Jacques, president of the Federation.

“It is a demanding subject, but with the arrival of new technologies in the classroom, there are more and more tools available to teachers and students to make it engaging and fun. Let us take advantage of these tools to improve the performance of young Quebecers in mathematics and ensure that more and more of them succeed, ”adds Mr. St-Jacques.

In recent years, several private schools have put forward a series of innovations to boost the teaching of mathematics, in particular by using ICT. Through workshops, training courses or Internet forums, teachers discuss best practices in the classroom. Inspired by each other's experiences and successes, teachers are then able to adapt these innovations to their school's educational project.

"Thanks to the initiative of teachers and pedagogical advisers who innovate and who share their innovations with teachers from other schools, we notice great progress in the ways of teaching mathematics and of interesting young people" explains M . St Jacques. “Most importantly, we are making good progress in helping students with special challenges and who need more instructional support to be successful in math. The Federation wishes good success and above all a lot of fun to all the students of Quebec who will participate in this event.

The Federation of Private Educational Institutions

The Federation brings together 190 establishments spread across the whole of Quebec. These establishments provide services to more than 110,000 preschool, elementary and secondary education and special education students, or approximately 12 % of the Québec school population.

The member establishments of the Federation are autonomous. They report directly to the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport and teach the Quebec school training program, common to all schools in Quebec. The vast majority of private establishments are non-profit organizations that belong to the civilian community. Some are parent or worker cooperatives. They have the flexibility to respond effectively to the needs of their students and to adapt to the demands of a changing society.
