Implementing the Grades 6-8 Common Core State Standards with NCTM Resources
Presented by Barb Dougherty
Will you be implementing the Common Core State Standards of Mathematics (CCSSM) in your state? The CCSSM build on NCTM's three decades of Standards work to define the mathematics that students need to know and be able to do. This session will focus on the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in grades 6-8 with an emphasis on ratio, proportional reasoning and algebra. Find out more about the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, NCTM's shared vision, and NCTM resources that can support you now and in the future.
Nov 10, 2010 08:00 AM : Using Jokes and Humor Effectively in the Mathematics Classroom (General)
When used effectively, humor helps to create a positive environment for learning. In this seminar, we'll explore how jokes can be used to help students retain information, illuminate concepts, and set the stage for problem solving. Come find out how many math teachers it takes to change a light bulb, and learn how to use this joke (and others) effectively with your students.
