Webinar Series: President’s Messages
September 27, 2017 | 7:00 p.m. ET
Dive deeper into topics presented in recent messages from NCTM President Matt Larson.
Plan to join these webinars based on new or upcoming NCTM publications.
As part of our
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.
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.
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.
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.

Presidential Address, "Who's Doing the Talking?"
How can we make democracy a reality in math class and in school?
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 describing a set of effective teaching practices and engaging participants in a discussion of how to help teachers learn to use them.
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
The focus of this session will be to discuss the difference between and the relationship of computational proficiency and number sense.
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 and address issues in the preparation and ongoing work of mathematics teachers at every level and offer suggestions on supporting and retaining them.
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.
Using data from international comparisons to illustrate key points, this seminar will explore emerging research on the relationships between teaching and learning.
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.
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.
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.
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.
