The Fletcher's Meadow S.S. Mathematics Department was the proud recipient of the Ken Fryer Award presented by OAME (Ontario Association of Mathematics Education) for the top department in the province in the 2005-2006 school year. It was awarded for overwhelming collegiality, implementation of new curriculum and innovative programs with new technology.
For the past few years now, Texas Instruments has chosen FMSS as a pilot site for testing their newest calculator, the TI NSpire. TI has provided over $10 000 worth of technology for our use. Students in Senior University Math courses are required to rent/purchase one for the semester. These students use the Nspire everyday both for classwork and homework and are expected to use them on tests and assessments. Junior students will use Nspires in class for lessons and activities.
