Sessions offer notable and thought provoking leaders in math education
and related fields as they inspire attendees at NCTM Conferences.
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.
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.
Presidential Address, "Who's Doing the Talking?"
How can we make democracy a reality in math class and in school?
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.
The focus of this session will be to discuss the difference between and the relationship of computational proficiency and number sense.
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.
This E-Seminar will concentrate on developing mathematical and instructional knowledge of fractions, ratios, and proportional thinking to improve students' understanding of fractional concepts and procedures.
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.
Starting with equity and learning, we'll move to the powerful eight practices of effective teaching, and make the case for how curriculum, tools and technology, assessment and professionalism are the essential systemic supports.
Steven Strogatz will describe his adventures in bringing math to the masses, including what worked ... and what didn't.
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.
In the blink of an eye, the unconscious mind decides lots of (often important) things for us, without our even knowing what we're doing. The speaker will describe how we make these decisions and why some people are so much better at it than others.
