Making Math Culturally Relevant Through Experiential Learning

Presented by: Breedeen Pickford-Murray, Kevin Davis,
Grades: High School

Culturally relevant teaching is important, but it can seem like an impossible task to do it well. Often the missing ingredient in the classroom is student choice. Allowing students to develop their own projects gives them a space that honors who they are as individuals, helping them to form and develop their mathematical identities.

Amplifying Language in Sense Making Routines

Presented by: Nichole Lindgren,
Grades: 3rd to 5th

TODOS: Mathematics for ALL 100 Days of Professional Learning Series Speakers

How do you introduce the language that students will need to access and participate in a sense making routine and avoid a disconnected, rote introduction? In this session you will learn how to embed strategies into sense making routines to amplify language, provide access, and encourage participation for emergent multilingual students.

Empowering Students in Math Through Entrepreneurship

Presented by: Erin Krupa, Michael Belcher, Jere Confrey,
Grades: 6th to 8th

Learn about the Design & Pitch Challenges in STEM: a curricular framework that situates middle grades mathematics learning in entrepreneurial pitch competitions. Participants will experience a challenge and explore how entrepreneurship can support interdisciplinary STEM learning, with a mathematics focus, to increase students' excitement for STEM.

A Lesson on Social Justice, What Should Be In It?

Presented by: Kwame Anthony Scott,
Grades: 6th to 8th, High School

Lesson Planning too often neglects to include the lifestyles of students of African ancestry. So, too often these students see no relevance in the lesson and it is not delivered from their point of reference. Thus, this presentation will merge a social justice approach to their life experiences with a mathematics topic with CRT.

Making Fractions Fun! It is Possible!

Presented by: Jennifer Wilson,
Grades: 3rd to 5th, 6th to 8th

Don't dread teaching fraction concepts and skills to your students! Join us as we learn engaging activities that teach the fraction standards and allow your students to have fun at the same time! We will share and practice strategies that involve games and manipulatives to make fractions fun again that you can use immediately!

Kandinsky, Klee & Mondrian: Using Abstract Art to Teach Geometric Concepts & Fractions

Presented by: Kristina Barnaby,
Grades: 6th to 8th

Join me as I showcase three lessons that infuse art into the math classroom. Students learn how shapes play a role in artistic design and apply mathematical concepts while creating their own interpretations of works by Kandinsky (area of circles), Klee (fractions), and Mondrian (area and perimeter of quadrilaterals). Student work will be showcased.

All Are Invited! Creating a Culture of Learning for Each and Every Student

Presented by: Jacqui Lehmkuhl,
Grades: 6th to 8th, High School

articipants will experience my 'mathemagical' learning wonderland where a culture of purpose, caring, and fun is the norm. Simple to implement strategies will be provided to start a revolution of positive change where even the most reluctant learners experience the joys, creativity, and the belief of themselves as mathematicians.

How to Help Students Become Problem Solvers, Not Math Robots

Presented by: Robert Kaplinsky,
Grades: 6th to 8th, High School

If you're frustrated because students seem like they understand what you teach them until you see their test scores, then you'll love using problems with open middles. Come learn how to implement problems that will clearly show what your kids know, help them become problem solvers, and have them begging for more.

High Impact Strategies for Sustaining Girls’ Academic Interest and Career Pursuits in Mathematics (General Interest)

Presented by: Lorraine Howard,
