  • Minnesota Council of Teachers of Mathematics Symposium

    8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

    2019 MCTM ROSS TAYLOR SYMPOSIUM FOR MATHEMATICS EDUCATION AND LEADERSHIP. Lead by Fawn Nguyen Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center – Duluth, MN. As a full-time practicing classroom teacher, I will share with you what I implement in my classroom that covers a range of “critical thinking demands” to invite all students into a mathematics curriculum that is relevant and challenging, one that values procedural skills as well as conceptual understanding. We will work with visual patterns to develop algebraic reasoning and engage in number talks to develop number sense and flexible thinking. We will experience productive struggle through rich and challenging tasks that support the Standards for Mathematical Practice. We will implement a curriculum that endeavors to make math social, one that values collaboration and encourages play and risk-taking.
