Classroom Norms and Routines for Building Student Agency and Equitable Mathematical Environments (General Interest)

Presented by: Kathy Ernst,
Grades: 3rd to 5th, 6th to 8th, High School, Higher Education, PreK to 2nd

Webinar description:How do teachers support students to build agency for mathematics and foster positive mathematical identities? In this session, participants will learn how to develop classroom norms and routines that create emotionally and socially safe spaces for students to engage in problem solving through productive struggle, risk taking, and metacognition.

Rough Drafts in Math Class: Going beyond Getting Correct Answers (General Interest) (sponsored by Stenhouse Publishers)

Presented by: Amanda Jansen,
Grades: 3rd to 5th, 6th to 8th, High School, Higher Education, PreK to 2nd

Webinar description: In this workshop, we will explore how to treat the process of doing mathematics as generating a rough draft, gaining new insights, and revising. Rough draft thinking is a process of continuously developing understanding. When mathematics teachers welcome students' in-progress ideas, learning mathematics can be less threatening and more meaningful.

Impacting Learning for Black and Latinx Youth through Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies

Presented by: Desha Williams, Jasia Clark,
Grades: 6th to 8th

What does culturally sustaining mean? How does it connect to the teaching and learning of rigorous mathematics or align with the mathematics practices? Come to this session and find out! In this session, participants will engage in tasks that promote culturally sustainability for Black and Latinx youth while teaching concepts from 6-8 curricula.

100 Photos + 100 Math Questions from Cities That Have Hosted NCTM Conferences in the Past 100 Years (General Interest)

Presented by: Ron Lancaster,
Grades: 3rd to 5th, 6th to 8th, High School, Higher Education, PreK to 2nd

Webinar description:In this session we will focus on the joy and excitement of seeing where math lives in dozens of cities in North America that have been sites of NCTM Conferences. We will coddiwomple with Ron Lancaster as he illustrates the math to be found by going for a walk, slowing down, paying attention to the little things, taking photos and asking questions.

Author Panel Talk – Rich Tasks (Sponsored by Stenhouse Publishers) **BONUS WEBINAR**

Presented by: Beth Kobett, Patrick Vennebush, Roger Day, Marian Small,
Grades: 3rd to 5th, 6th to 8th, High School, Higher Education, PreK to 2nd

Beth Kobett moderates an Author Panel Talk given by authors Marian Small, Patrick Vennebush, and Roger Day, who share useful tidbits from Good Questions Great Ways to Differentiate Mathematics Instruction in the Standards-Based Classroom ,fourth edition; One-Hundred Problems Involving the Number 100: Celebrate NCTM's First Century , and The Activity Gems series (including the PK–2 and 3–5  books currently available).

A Chat with a Hidden Figure: Dr. Christine Darden (Sponsored by: Reveal Math by McGraw Hill)

Presented by: Robert Q. Berry III, Dr. Christine Darden, Shelly Jones,

Join this session as Dr. Christine Mann Darden, a 2019 Congressional Gold Medal recipient and former NASA mathematician, data analyst and aeronautical engineer, shares about her life and experiences during this question and answer session with NCTM Past President, Dr. Robert Berry and Dr. Shelly Jones, author of Women Who Count: Honoring African American Women Mathematicians. Dr. Darden was highlighted in Hidden Figures featuring Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson as they contributed to the NASA Space Program as part of the segregated West Computers in the 1960s. Dr. Darden was a “human computer” and an aerospace engineer at NASA then became one of the leading researchers in sonic boom minimization. Prior to working at NASA, Dr. Darden was a high school mathematics teacher and shortly after completing her masters degree she was hired as a data analyst assigned to the pool of human computers at NASA.

Strengthsfinding: Building Mathematical Proficiency Through a Strengths-Based Lens (NCTM Members Only)

Presented by: Beth Kobett, Karen Karp,

This session is available to Members only.

All students possess mathematical brilliance across and within mathematics content areas including mathematical understandings, skills, and dispositions. It is in the ways our students approach and learn mathematics that we can unearth their points of power. From there, these strengths can be leveraged to become opportunities to access areas where they experience challenge. Join us to interpret students' mathematical behaviors and discover the many powerful mathematical strengths your students hold.

Resources and Tools for Engaging Families in Fact Fluency (General Interest)

Presented by: Jennifer Bay-Williams,

Registration now open.

In my April webinar, I briefly shared ways to engage families across different school activities. In this session, we will spend more time on actual activities (games, tools, and other activities) that are appropriate for family events, as well as home learning and online learning.

Teacher Tip Tuesday: Avoiding Data and Science Misinformation in Today's Messy Media Landscape (Open to All)

Presented by:

Media Literacy Week This panel presentation and discussion will explore the role media play in building scientific and mathematical understanding and the impact misinformation is having on how young people navigate their roles as both students and citizens.  The discussants will consider how best to evaluate the data and conclusions shared via mainstream and social media, especially in relation to the pandemic, the environment, the economy, and other current issues.  The session is designed to empower educators through both resources and techniques to deploy data literacy principles and media analysis. 

This event is a collaboration among the National Science Teaching Association, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Education Development Center, and the National Association for Media Literacy Education.


- Educators gain new understanding of how media are impacting their students’ scientific reasoning and mathematical thinking

- Educators have access to useful resources to integrate media literacy practices into their current instruction
