What You'll Accomplish—The Institute's Defined Outcomes

Activities are designed for you and your peers to achieve defined outcomes together. Participants will—

  • understand that the mathematical practices in CCSSM and the mathematical processes in NCTM’s Process Standards are integral to teaching;
  • learn instructional strategies that enable students to experience and to develop the habits of mind of a mathematically proficient student;
  • examine mathematical content through the lens of the CCSSM mathematical practices, the NCTM Process Standards, and the teaching and learning standards from Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All; and
  • engage in activities related to task selection, development, and implementation, both during and after the Institute.

Keynote Sessions

Well-known mathematics leaders will address teaching, learning, and assessment related to the mathematical practices in CCSSM and NCTM’s Process Standards. 

Here are just a few of the exceptional speakers presenting at the institute.

Peg Smith Speaks at NCTM Institute in Chicago  Opening Session
Task, Tools, and Talk: A Framework for Enacting Mathematical Practices

Margaret (Peg) Smith, University of Pittsburgh

In Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (2014), NCTM identifies eight research-inspired teaching practices that represent its accumulated wisdom regarding what constitutes effective teaching. This session will focus on describing these eight practices, discussing how they support students’ learning of mathematical content and processes, and then engage participants in analyzing instructional episodes in which the practices are embedded.

Reflecting on Student Engagement

Cathy Seeley, Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin (retired)

We will look back over the experiences of this institute and consider the opportunities and challenges for the coming year in helping students develop the mathematical habits of mind described in the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice and NCTM’s Process Standards.How can each educator transform the classroom to become an ever-richer environment for students to become powerful mathematical thinkers?
