NCTM!

Here we go! Things I’m interested in:

1. Mathematical modeling in the middle school classroom
3. Anything that promises to provide lots of rich tasks I can use on Monday
4. Equity in inquiry-based classrooms
5. Engaging students in rigorous practice

  • Thursday 9:30 am: “Key Words Help,” “Inquiry Won’t Work,” and Other Myths — Alexis Dixon, Juli Dixon
  • Thursday 9:30 am: How Can We “Make Use of Structure”? — Jenny Tsankova, James Matthews
