Math Connections: math and music, math and sports, math and memes and global pandemics... math and everything!
I run Math Connections, an after-school math program for gr. 4-9. Each week, we explore the connections between math and something else: music, sports, feminism, galaxies, art... everything! Check the website or contact for more details.
Math Connections was born at Carleton University in the Math Enrichment Centre, has run at York University as a summer camp, and is now a private program operating out of CSI.
Background: I'm a math and science teacher, currently supply teaching in the TDSB. I've taught for almost a decade in many varied environments, including in an international school in Colombia, a math enrichment program for gifted students, lunchtime chess clubs at public schools, an alternative school for students with learning disabilities, private tutoring sessions, and more.
In my other life, I’m a songwriter, musician, comedian and performer. I’ve performed in many shows and venues in Toronto and across Canada, and have self-recorded and produced a live comedy special, an album and many music videos. I perform under the name Xave Ruth, and you can find me on all the social media platforms (YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzTwdq8bs_YThYVKECqkW8A?view_as=subscriber)
