Congratulations to Dr. Rina Zazkis, the recipient of the 2019 Jonathan Borwein Mathematics Ambassador Award!

The research of Dr. Rina Zazkis on teachers’ knowledge and her work in teacher education strengthens the preparation of mathematics teachers at different levels. In turn, this enhances the mathematical preparation of students and their readiness to pursue further studies towards careers in STEM. As such, the downstream impacts of her work are transforming educational practice in Canada to better equip our youth to find their place in the knowledge economy.
