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.
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.
In this E-Seminar you will learn many different writing activities that can be used enhance learning in mathematics.
How can we make democracy a reality in math class and in school?
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
The focus of this session will be to discuss the difference between and the relationship of computational proficiency and number sense.
Presidential Address, "Who's Doing the Talking?"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
