Numeracy Initiative


Numeracy and Mathematics 

The Mathematics Department at York Memorial Collegiate is committed to the success of all students. Our emphasis is on numeracy and developing critical thinking skills. Our goal is to create mathematically literate and confident citizens through teaching concepts, not just procedures.  We encourage all students to participate in extra-curricular math activities such as the Math Challenge, chess club and math contests.

YMCI Math Challenge

The Math Challenge is presented by the Numeracy PLC. It is a set of three questions given once a month. Students are invited to attempt any or all of the questions for an entry into a draw for each correct solution. The grand prize is yet to be determined and there will also be smaller, monthly prizes. Math Challenge questions are posted monthly on the Academic Workspace and are available from your Math teacher.
