This has been an interesting time for all of us. Before we started M Magazine in 2021, one of the things I missed most was the opportunity to travel to different parts of the country to talk to teachers and see what I could do to help them in the area of mathematics education. So, I approached Rubicon, the group that brought you MathUP, and together we decided to launch an online mathematics education magazine for teachers that I thought would serve our needs—my need to interact with you, and your need for on-the-spot, at-your-leisure information.

Marian taps into her decades of experience to answer reader questions about math pedagogy. If you have questions about using technology, choosing between different strategies, collecting assessment data, or anything related to teaching math at all, Marian has advice and insight to share.
In short, targeted video segments, Marian gives you hands-on demonstrations of fun and engaging tasks that you can share with your students.
When we’re looking for innovation, sometimes we have to look only to our students. “Things We Love” introduces you to creative strategies and games that students have invented.
In “The Latest,” M Magazine brings you a pair of in-depth feature articles and interviews each issue. M Magazine goes into detail about topics that are on the minds of math educators now, such as teaching virtually, understanding equity, and teaching financial literacy.
Feeling lost in the virtual teaching environment? Confused by a curriculum change? You’re not alone. Marian brings her insight to thorny, complicated questions that don’t have easy answers, and she clarifies what the real issues are.
This new, reader-inspired section spotlights a children’s book that could be used to engage your students, elicit valuable mathematical thinking, and introduce important math concepts.
Marian will conduct live webinars on specific topics, such as critical thinking and assessment.
Building on the teaching strategies explored in Marian and Rubicon’s resources MathUP and Open Questions, “Shareables” are learning resources for students from Kindergarten to Grade 8. M Magazine will provide you with special activities for teachers and parents, as well as games and additional practice activities.
