Webinars and Webcasts
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Common Core doesn't outline the necessary structures to ensure higher levels of mathematics student achievement. What it takes to implement highly effective mathematics programs is the focus of NCTM's signature publication Principles to Action. One of its authors will outline the wide range of recommendations in the document for making mathematics work for all.
In Spring 2015, the Common Core assessments will be administered for the first time. What actions will best prepare us-students, teachers, leaders- for these assessments? What challenges must we address in light of these assessments? And what can we learn from past assessment improvement efforts to help us meet these challenges?
Freeman A. Hrabowski spoke about his love of mathematics as he delivered the Iris M. Carl Equity Address.
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.
This clip features Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education with an introduction by Hank Kepner.
The speakers will share a model using professional collaboration among teachers to develop instruction through problem solving in grades K-8 classrooms.
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.
FoxTrot cartoonist Bill Amend has been injecting math and science humor into North America's funny pages for more than 25 years. He'll share examples and stories as he discusses the joys and challenges of bringing math to the masses.
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.
This session will honor the 2013 recipients of the NCTM Lifetime Achievement Awards. The awards are bestowed to NCTM members who have exhibited a lifetime of achievement in mathematics education at the national level.
In this session, one of its authors will explore the Equity Principle and discuss obstacles and interventions to bring this vision to reality.
Getting the message out about the importance of mathematics, where mathematics is headed, and the partners we need to get there is crucial as we prepare students for their future in a global society.
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.
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.
