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.
Using data from international comparisons to illustrate key points, this seminar will explore emerging research on the relationships between teaching and learning.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Steven Strogatz will describe his adventures in bringing math to the masses, including what worked ... and what didn't.
Mayim Bialik, the Emmy-nominated actress on The Big Bang Theory and real-life neuroscientist, is on a mission to help educators and parents inspire students to pursue STEM education and careers.
Pedro Noguera, a leader in education reform, will offer a dynamic, profound perspective on the challenges of racial inequality and diversity. He tackles the problems of race relations, desegregation, vouchers, and violence within schools and gives some solutions that you can use to bring equal opportunity in education to our schools.
The nation's number one advocate for education summarizes the Department of Education's priorities and its blueprint for the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (No Child Left Behind), as well as the need for programs like Race to the Top.
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.
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.
This clip features Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education with an introduction by Hank Kepner.
A number of math-educational video games are available. Most focus on basic skills and are little more that a forced marriage of video games to traditional pedagogy. As our experience with the genre increases, we can expect to see some genuinely innovative new educational games. What pedagogic and design principles are educational video game developers currently following? How will they affect the way we teach?
The CCSSM and NCTM share a view that important mathematics includes both content and mathematical processes. Examine connections between CCSSM standards for mathematical practice and NCTM Process Standards, and their respective implementations, as a key to improving instruction and students' learning and to closing the achievement gap.
A series of models will be used to demonstrate how formulas for the volumes of every solid studied in Geometry 1 - and many that are not - spring from the very shape whose name symbolized volume: the cube. The concept will be expanded to develop formulas for volumes of new shapes, culminating in the formula for the volume of the Dynamic Tower.
The speakers will examine how to use the number line to help students understand fractions. Learn how to use the number line effectively to reinforce that fractions are numbers, develop an understanding of magnitude, and make comparisons. Strategies for addressing the Common Core State Standards will be presented.
Manipulatives hold a key to understanding the beginnings of algebra. Strategies for creative uses of manipulatives foster understanding so students see what expressions such as 3 br , lwh , and x +2 y really mean. A concrete foundation for math notation and symbols will demystify a complex code for students. Let's help students learn the secret code.
