Professional Development in Manitoba

Professional development in Manitoba is led by Peter Andres.

1-Day Professional Development


JUMP Math’s Professional Development (PD) session is designed to give you the tools and skills to effectively implement the program in your classroom or school. In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn about the JUMP Math resources, its philosophy and development
  • Examine their own comfort levels with mathematics and mathematics teaching
  • Discuss the importance of teachers' mathematical knowledge
  • Observe and critique a JUMP Math lesson
  • Become familiar with JUMP Math's teacher and student materials
  • Learn about anticipating ‘pitfalls’, task analysis and other JUMP Math teaching strategies
  • Discuss practical strategies
  • Have opportunities to share ideas and network with colleagues
  • Explore our SMART Lesson Materials

Books (one set per participant) are available at a discounted price and must be ordered at time of registration. No books will be sold at the workshop.

Note: Our Professional Development session is also available as a series of webinars.


2-Day Workshops


DAY 1: JUMP Math in the Classroom: Closing the Gap!

Day 1 shows you how to effectively make the most of JUMP Math's Teacher's Guides to raise levels of student engagement, boost confidence, close the gap between students and instill a deep understanding and love of math in your students.

DAY 2: Numeracy Skill Building and Problem Solving Strategies Used in JUMP Math

Day 2 is all about helping you develop a deeper understanding of JUMP Math techniques and to develop strong numeracy and problem-solving skills. We will guide you to explore topics related to systematic search, making models and diagrams, making simpler versions of a problem using patterns. Discover how easy it is to raise the bar using bonus questions and also how to put on a math fair at your school.

2-day workshops are usually held during the summer months.

Outreach Manager in Winnipeg

Peter Andres
Peter has followed a passion for coaching into a career in education. As a math teacher, Peter has experience at every grade level from K-12. In students and for himself, Peter has seen how small achievements lead into confidence and a greater desire for more success. He is not afraid to take chances or try new things - bungee jumping and learning to play guitar are a few most recent examples! But just don’t get him started on stories of championship teams or on his golf game. As a father of three, he understands the need for patience. As a coach, he values the need for practice. As a teacher, he is a great encourager that shares in the joy of his students as they step into greater things. As a part of the JUMP Math team, Peter is working with teachers as they continue at building up their students toward greater success. His favourite number is 13, because it as a prime number with nothing unlucky about it. Contact Peter.
