Webinars and Webcasts
Join NCTM as we celebrate our Centennial with 100 Days of Professional Learning. Live 60-minute webinars presented by selected speakers from the NCTM Centennial Annual Meeting program that was to be held in Chicago.
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.
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.
The focus of this session will be to discuss the difference between and the relationship of computational proficiency and number sense.
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.
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.
In the blink of an eye, the unconscious mind decides lots of (often important) things for us, without our even knowing what we're doing. The speaker will describe how we make these decisions and why some people are so much better at it than others.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This session highlights equity and access in NCTM's new signature publication Principles to Actions . This session will outline the range of actions intersecting with equity and access in PtA.
In this session, one of its authors will explore the Equity Principle and discuss obstacles and interventions to bring this vision to reality.
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?
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.
One of the goals of the team writing the common core standards was to capture the coherence of mathematics. The team identified unifying principles that tie together the disparate topics in school mathematics. The speaker will describe these principles and illustrate with examples how they can provide coherence to the curriculum.
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.
This spring, NCTM is publishing Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All. We will discuss this statement of what is essential for achieving excellence in mathematics education and how it relates to the high school mathematics program.
This session will explore and address issues in the preparation and ongoing work of mathematics teachers at every level and offer suggestions on supporting and retaining them.
Rote memorization through drill and practice does not lead to fluency. Let's look at ways we can help students use strategic thinking that develops to fluency through reasoning and sense making.
NCTM frames a core set of highly effective teaching practices for mathematics, advancing our professional knowledge of representations, struggle, fluency, evidence, and more.
