Subject-specific VTE Labs : Innovative Practices in Mathematics with PreTeXt

By Florence Sedaminou Muratet. The 20 January 2021

On 15 January 2021, took place the first disciplinary laboratory on the use of the innovative pedagogical practice in mathematics teaching. This event was organised as part of the inter-college pedagogical meetings initiated by the Cégep St-Lawrence. We've explored the PreTeXt software, which is a markup language for capturing the structure of textbooks and research documents in the mathematical sciences. Thanks to Jean-Sébastien and Philémon Turcotte from the Cégep Gérald-Godin, as well as to Julien Giol for their presentations and fruitful exchanges.

Presenters : 
Jean-Sébastien holds a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Université Laval and a Master's degree in Mathematics from Université de Montréal. He has been teaching since 2012 and at the Cégep Gérald-Godin since 2015. He has been involved in the development of francophone problems on WeBWorK through the Mathema-TIC project and is also involved in the design of QAM contests.

Philémon Turcotte has been a maths teacher since 2014 and has worked in two CEGEPs in the Montreal area. He is currently coordinator of the Cégep Gérald-Godin's mathematics group. He has taught all the mathematics courses in the Natural Sciences program and about ten courses in other programs. For the past three years, he has been developing original material specifically for the Linear Algebra and Vector Geometry course
