It is time for NCTM's focus on reasoning and sense making in high school to extend to grades K-8. To improve student achievement, we must consider both content and instructional process. What are some characteristics of classrooms that implicitly build student sense making and understanding? Let's start with number and operations.
Haycock will review data on students' performance, identify primary problem areas, and share practices from the schools and districts that are most effective in raising achievement and closing gaps.
Using data from international comparisons to illustrate key points, this seminar will explore emerging research on the relationships between teaching and learning.
The annual Iris M. Carl Equity Address is being established to underscore the crucial need for collective action in advancing understanding of equality and equity in education.
In this E-Seminar you will learn many different writing activities that can be used enhance learning in mathematics.
This session will focus on the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in grades 9-12 with an emphasis on mathematical modeling, algebra, data analysis and reasoning and sense making.
This spring, NCTM is publishing Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All. We will discuss this statement of what is essential for achieving excellence in mathematics education and how it relates to the high school mathematics program.
View Lee V. Stiff's rousing closing address.
NCTM has recognized the need to promote new discussion around high school mathematics. This session will provided participants an opportunity to discuss NCTM's Focus on High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making . Other NCTM activities related to high school mathematics will also be discussed.
Learn how to use multiple representations to help students in their problem solving. Examples will include solutions with multiple representations and how different representations can support different types of learners
This session will explore and address issues in the preparation and ongoing work of mathematics teachers at every level and offer suggestions on supporting and retaining them.
This fast-paced session will stimulate participants to think about practical ways to bring about change in their classrooms and districts. One of the authors of NCTM's Principles to Actions, Daniel Brahier, will spotlight changes in curricular and assessment practices at the secondary level that can assist with implementation of the Common Core State Standards.
Jeffrey Travis, director of the IMAX 3-D movie Flatland: The Movie , shows clips from the movie and discusses the power of storytelling in mathematics and in geometry in particular.
Iris Carl had a tremendous impact on the lives of students, parents, teachers, college educators, school administrators, and politicians. Her vision and ideals helped to shape NCTM and math education in the United States for the better. Carl's leadership brought needed change to math education and provides an example for all those who follow her.

We need to take stock of the record and take action from the state house to the classroom, so that our vision becomes reality and our hopes for our students are realized.
This session will explore simple strategies that any teacher can regularly use to make his or her classroom more inclusive and engaging for all students.
How can we make democracy a reality in math class and in school?
A diver is released from a rotating Ferris wheel and lands in a tub of water that is on a cart moving along a track under the wheel. When should she be released in order to avoid a very unpleasant outcome? Participants will have an opportunity to model this problem using Sketchpad.
