Conference Strands

Teaching with the New Standards

Virginia has revised the Mathematics Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools. Teachers need to align their curriculum and instruction to the 2016 Standards. We are looking for presentations that highlight the new standards and share innovative ways to teach the new standards. 

Access and Equity

Access and equity require being responsive to students' backgrounds, experiences, and knowledge when designing, implementing, and assessing the effectiveness of mathematics instruction. This strand is open to sessions that help teachers address diverse learners and varying learning strategies.

Enhancing Teaching and Learning

What practices will provide teachers the tools they need to embed the mathematical process standards in their instruction? This strand focuses on the best instructional practices in the area of mathematics education. This strand is open to practices that support the mathematical learning of teachers and their students as well as provide teachers the opportunity to experience learning from the student's point of view.

Enhancing Instruction with Technology

How can we use technology effectively? Technology can be a great help in the classroom, but it can also be superficial. We are looking for sessions that harness the power of technology to enhance student understanding of mathematics. This strand is open to sessions that highlight any type of technology from apps to websites to software to social media to Open Educational Resources.

Registration is now open! Go here to register.  

We hope to see you there!
