Dive deeper into topics presented in recent messages from NCTM President Matt Larson.
Plan to join these webinars based on 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.
What makes mathematics educators passionate? Watch 10 math educators light up the room with fresh ideas in teaching and learning. Each speaker gets five minutes, using 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds whether they're ready or not.
Under the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), which topics related to fraction addition will elementary teachers cover? Which skills can high school teachers hope that students will have already practiced? Within and beyond CCSSM, how can we teach addition of ratios of integers with methods that extend to ratios of polynomials? We will look at various perspectives.
This presentation will give exclusive clips and behind-the-scenes insight from the new film, Flatland 2: Sphereland . Join the speakers for the sneak peek into the mathematics of making the new animated film, and catch exclusive clips from the movie featuring math lessons.
This session will discuss the relationship between equity and rigor. The definition of rigor one chooses determines which students appear to succeed and which do not. The speakers will present definitions of rigor from a variety of sources; share examples of rigorous, classroom-based mathematical task; and discuss implications of these definitions and tasks for increasing equity in the mathematics classroom.
Mike North, who is the mastermind behind Discovery Channel's
Prototype This! was the Closing Session speaker at the NCTM 2015 Annual Meeting
& Exposition in Boston.
Freeman A. Hrabowski spoke about his love of mathematics as he delivered the Iris M. Carl Equity Address.
This presentation will give straightforward advice on how to teach mathematics to ELLs. The speakers will describe strategies for facilitating classrooms discussions, helping ELLs read and interpret mathematics textbooks, and helping them tackle word problems.
Developing students' number sense entails multiple and varied experiences over time. Using concrete, visual, and symbolic representations can facilitate this process. We will share specific classroom examples to highlight how ot select, make, use, and link representations effectively to build and enhance students' number sense.
View Lee V. Stiff's rousing closing address.
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.
What are the next steps we should consider with regard to curricular essentials for all students as we balance the "competitiveness issue" with the absolute need for all children to have access to a quality mathematics program?
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.
Students can draw on informal reasoning and life experience to make sense of quantities and their relationships. I will share student work along with video episodes of middle and high school students reasoning about quantities that change together. Learn ways to support and inquire into your students' reasoning.
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 E-Seminar will help teachers create and support a mathematics community within their classrooms.
More than 2,300 people gathered to welcome the release of NCTM's updated
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.
