Nathalie Sinclair Inducted into Royal Society of Canada

September 12, 2017

Nathalie Sinclair is one of 70 members across Canada who have been peer-elected to the 2017 cohort of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists of the Royal Society of Canada. The College is an interdisciplinary collegium of young leaders who work together to advance understanding for the nation's social good.

Nathalie Sinclair, the Canada Research Chair in Tangible Mathematics Learning since 2011, is fascinated by the potential of technology both to bring mathematics to vibrant life and to transform how teachers and learners can approach the subject. Her research focuses primarily on how to make mathematics more learnable, by enabling children to engage with concepts in tangible and dynamic ways that facilitate both a deeper and a more fluent understanding

The official presentation of the 2017 College members will take place on November 24, 2017 in Winnipeg.
