Using data from international comparisons to illustrate key points, this seminar will explore emerging research on the relationships between teaching and learning.
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.
View Lee V. Stiff's rousing closing address.
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 E-Seminar will help teachers create and support a mathematics community within their classrooms.
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.
Assessment Considerations for RTI in Mathematics. Response to Intervention (RTI) is a system through which early detection, prevention, and support identifies and assists students who are struggling. This session will emphasize the assessment processes within this system.
This seminar will focus on the relationship between the nature of the mathematical tasks in which students engage and what students ultimately learn about what mathematics is and how one does it.
More than 2,300 people gathered to welcome the release of NCTM's updated
Applying Response to Intervention (RTI) in Mathematics to Support ALL Learners presented. RTI is a system through which early detection, prevention, and support identifies and assists students who are struggling.
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.
Presidential Address, "Who's Doing the Talking?"
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 .

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.
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.
Rote memorization through drill and practice does not lead to fluency. Let's look at ways we can help students use strategic thinking that develops to fluency through reasoning and sense making.
Teachers will be introduced to design projects that incorporate the ideas of engineering with mathematics content, including consumer math, measurement, geometry and statistics. Participants will be given the opportunity to work in teams to create one of the designs in the session.
