continuing work and collaboration, we invite you to participate in quarterly webinars on Equity and Social Justice in Mathematics Education.
E-seminars are recorded professional development webinars with facilitator guide and handouts. E-seminars are free for NCTM members.
Webcasts of Annual Meeting Keynote Sessions offer notable and thought provoking leaders in math education and related fields as they inspire attendees at NCTM Conferences.
Students can draw on informal reasoning and life experience to make sense of quantities and their relationships. I will share student work along with video episodes of middle and high school students reasoning about quantities that change together. Learn ways to support and inquire into your students' reasoning.
The speakers will share a model using professional collaboration among teachers to develop instruction through problem solving in grades K-8 classrooms.
FoxTrot cartoonist Bill Amend has been injecting math and science humor into North America's funny pages for more than 25 years. He'll share examples and stories as he discusses the joys and challenges of bringing math to the masses.
This session highlights equity and access in NCTM's new signature publication Principles to Actions . This session will outline the range of actions intersecting with equity and access in PtA.
Come explore a variety of approaches that may help your students be more successful in mathematics. Be prepared to reflect on the behaviors of your students and your own behaviors in order to improve the teaching and learning of school mathematics.
This session will honor the 2013 recipients of the NCTM Lifetime Achievement Awards. The awards are bestowed to NCTM members who have exhibited a lifetime of achievement in mathematics education at the national level.
The nation's number one advocate for education summarizes the Department of Education's priorities and its blueprint for the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (No Child Left Behind), as well as the need for programs like Race to the Top.
Developing students' number sense entails multiple and varied experiences over time. Using concrete, visual, and symbolic representations can facilitate this process. We will share specific classroom examples to highlight how ot select, make, use, and link representations effectively to build and enhance students' number sense.
Explore applications of integers, make connections in multiple domains, explore students' misconceptions and strategies, and enhance pedagogical and content knowledge to improve students' conceptual understanding, which leads to flexibility when applying that knowledge to new situations.
In this session, one of its authors will explore the Equity Principle and discuss obstacles and interventions to bring this vision to reality.
Tired of hearing that Sudoku puzzles aren't about math? This session will explore a number of Sudoku variations that can be used in support of many different mathematical concepts, including ones from Number, Geometry, Algebra, Communication, Reasoning and Proof, and Connections Standards. Come prepared with an open mind and a sharpened pencil.
A class of fourth-grade students with learning disabilities used investigative activities to learn multiplications and division. The students adapted many of the activities to express their individual interest, to challenge their own thinking, and to represent and communicate their mathematical knowledge.
Steven Strogatz will describe his adventures in bringing math to the masses, including what worked ... and what didn't.
What are the next steps we should consider with regard to curricular essentials for all students as we balance the "competitiveness issue" with the absolute need for all children to have access to a quality mathematics program?
Pedro Noguera, a leader in education reform, will offer a dynamic, profound perspective on the challenges of racial inequality and diversity. He tackles the problems of race relations, desegregation, vouchers, and violence within schools and gives some solutions that you can use to bring equal opportunity in education to our schools.
Teachers who know the mathematics they teach are better at teaching it to their students. Teachers need to understand how English mathematics language challenges English language learners. This presentation will give teachers insight into the interplay of language, culture, and mathematics understanding.
Getting the message out about the importance of mathematics, where mathematics is headed, and the partners we need to get there is crucial as we prepare students for their future in a global society.
