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.
Using data from international comparisons to illustrate key points, this seminar will explore emerging research on the relationships between teaching and learning.
In this E-Seminar you will learn many different writing activities that can be used enhance learning in mathematics.
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.
Learn how to use multiple representations to help students in their problem solving. Examples will include solutions with multiple representations and how different representations can support different types of learners
This E-Seminar will concentrate on developing mathematical and instructional knowledge of fractions, ratios, and proportional thinking to improve students' understanding of fractional concepts and procedures.
This E-Seminar will help teachers create and support a mathematics community within their classrooms.
This session will explore simple strategies that any teacher can regularly use to make his or her classroom more inclusive and engaging for all students.

and question-and-answer session.
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.
Assessment Considerations for RTI in Mathematics. Response to Intervention (RTI) is a system through which early detection, prevention, and support identifies and assists students who are struggling. This session will emphasize the assessment processes within this system.
More than 2,300 people gathered to welcome the release of NCTM's updated
This seminar will focus on the relationship between the nature of the mathematical tasks in which students engage and what students ultimately learn about what mathematics is and how one does it.
It is time for NCTM's focus on reasoning and sense making in high school to extend to grades K-8. To improve student achievement, we must consider both content and instructional process. What are some characteristics of classrooms that implicitly build student sense making and understanding? Let's start with number and operations.
Haycock will review data on students' performance, identify primary problem areas, and share practices from the schools and districts that are most effective in raising achievement and closing gaps.
The annual Iris M. Carl Equity Address is being established to underscore the crucial need for collective action in advancing understanding of equality and equity in education.
Presidential Address, "Who's Doing the Talking?"
How can we make democracy a reality in math class and in school?
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.
Iris Carl had a tremendous impact on the lives of students, parents, teachers, college educators, school administrators, and politicians. Her vision and ideals helped to shape NCTM and math education in the United States for the better. Carl's leadership brought needed change to math education and provides an example for all those who follow her.
