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.
In this E-Seminar you will learn many different writing activities that can be used enhance learning in mathematics.
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.
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.
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.
Presidential Address, "Who's Doing the Talking?"
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
Stimulate your students' interest in mathematics through literature. Create appealing problems for your students to solve using the poems of Shel Silverstein as contexts. Explore problems involving ratio and proportion, percents, algebraic thinking, geometry, and measurement.
Explore the full range of assessments your teachers must consider. Consider professional development opportunities that will move your teachers toward implementation of the Common Core State Standards for grades K-6 and focus on a variety of assessments, interviews, and constructed response items.
The focus of this session will be to discuss the difference between and the relationship of computational proficiency and number sense.
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.
View Lee V. Stiff's rousing closing address.
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.
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?
This speaker will discuss the impact of No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top on the nation's schools and review research findings on such initiatives as merit pay and teacher evaluations.
Tired of hearing that Sudoku puzzles aren't about math? This session will explore a number of Sudoku variations that can be used in support of many different mathematical concepts, including ones from Number, Geometry, Algebra, Communication, Reasoning and Proof, and Connections Standards. Come prepared with an open mind and a sharpened pencil.
Teachers who know the mathematics they teach are better at teaching it to their students. Teachers need to understand how English mathematics language challenges English language learners. This presentation will give teachers insight into the interplay of language, culture, and mathematics understanding.
