Mark Olson invites you to talk about MathFlo, a workflow built on Math topic dependencies that may facilitate how students learn to evaluate arithmetic expressions, simplify algebraic expressions, and solve algebraic/transcendental equations.
You can also ask Mark about his popular spreadsheets for various teacher and student tasks, teaching without grades at the middle school level in Sweden, or teaching without high stakes testing at the upper secondary level - all from a Canadian perspective.





Event Host

Mark Olson is "a Math & Physics High School Teacher in Sweden: Developer of Mathflow ... all powered on espresso."

In more detail, Mark writes:

"I am a born and raised (by two SuperFantastic parents) Canadian from the small Northern Ontario village of Swastika (Since 1908). Much of my adolescent free time was spent at the Joe Mavrinac Community Complex where I swam for the Kirkland Lake Aquatic Club, KLAC, stingrays. The swimming would pay off a little later in life with a scholarship to Lindenwood University (St. Charles, MO) where I would earn my BA in Mathematics and MA in Education."
