  • San Diego Opening Session
    Change Is Good When Your Attitude Is Great!
    Session #2 - Hank Kepner, Willie Jolley

    Change happens! Life happens! Change is essential to any growth process, yet nobody wants to change. Progress necessitates change, and change is the key to progress. Jolley will share his “VDAD” (Vision, Decision, Action, Desire) formula for embracing change. You will view change as an ally, believing that change is good! Willie Jolley is truly a renaissance man—an award winning speaker, singer, author, and national columnist, all in one. In 1999 he was named “One of the Outstanding Five Speakers in the World” by Toastmasters International. He is the author of two international best selling books, It Only Takes a Minute to Change Your Life! and A Setback Is a Setup for a Comeback, and coauthor of several more. He is host of the radio show, The Willie Jolley Weekend Show on XM Radio.

  • The Common Core Standards Initiative
    Session #174 - Dane Linn, Gene Wilhoit

    Building on crucial work of NCTM and others, the National Governors Association, the Council of Chief State School Officers, and 48 states have begun developing common standards in mathematics. Participants will learn about the effort and discuss how NCTM members can play an active role in implementation of these standards across the states.

  • Mathematics Standards and Assessments Require Reasoning, Sense Making, and Connections
    Session #340    Lifetime Achievement Awards Presentation
    Henry S. Kepner
    President, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
    University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee

    As we continue to build and implement the NCTM Standards and assessment work, students must expect to make sense of the mathematics they are learning. They should reason about mathematics and connect it across content strands and to contexts throughout their experiences. Let’s look at examples of tasks and student engagement in doing mathematics.

  •  Connections for Equity: Math, Language, Culture, and Context
    Session #478   The Iris M. Carl Equity Address - Miriam A. Leiva

    We don’t teach mathematics; we teach students who come to us with diverse academic backgrounds, cultures, and languages—even if they were born in the United States. The speaker will discuss strategies for differentiating instruction to address these differences and to promote learning with understanding—for ELL and ALL. The annual Iris M. Carl Equity Address was established to underscore the critical need for collective action in advancing understanding of equality and equity in education. Inaugurated in 2008, the address commemorates Iris Carl’s lifelong commitment to educational equity and celebrates the vision and inspiration that she provided for achieving the goal of “more and better mathematics for all children.” Each year a distinguished scholar who is recognized for leadership and action related to equality in mathematics education is invited to deliver this featured address.

  • Sense Making in Mathematics: Where Have We Been, and Where Would We Like to Go?
    Session #648 - J. Michael Shaughnessy

    Throughout our history, there have been a number of calls for students’ sense making in mathematics. This session will remind us of some of those past pleas and then discuss the Council’s current goals for sense making for all our students.
