2019 Annual Conference

March 8 and 9, 2019

Longwood University, 201 High Street, Farmville, Va


For the Love of students, we teach mathematics


Call for Proposals

Please read the conference information below and then submit a proposal to speak! We are looking for proposals that align to our conference theme and one of the following four strands.

Teaching with the New Standards

This strand will focus on implementing the new standards. Sessions will illuminate the differences from the old to the new Mathematics Standards of Learning and provide new exemplar ideas for teaching, and assessing the new standards. Sessions may include activities that will help teachers implement the recently adopted computer science standards. The standards of focus should come from the following Computer Science Standard’s strands: Algorithms and Programming and Data and Analysis

Implementing Equitable Instruction

Sessions in this strand can include approaches for teaching that empower diverse learners, including culturally responsive teaching, teaching for social justice, teacher noticing, and differentiation.

Experience the Wonder, Joy, and Beauty of Math

Sessions in this strand should cultivate our sense of wonder, joy, and beauty of mathematics, particularly ideas that make connections with the fine arts, music, culture, or other creative mathematics ideas. We want to feel your love of mathematics.

Supporting the Success of Every Student

Sessions in this strand can include classroom-tested ideas and strategies, particularly ideas that support the eight research-informed instructional practices from NCTM's Principles to Actions.

Proposals will be accepted for two types of presentations:

Standard Sessions

This type of session is 75 minutes long. It provides enough time for attendees to participate in hands-on interactive activities. These sessions will typically be held in a classroom that may have tables or desks. Rooms will have a podium, computer, document camera, and projector. The typical room will hold 20 – 40 attendees depending on the room.

Tabletop Sessions

A tabletop session will provide attendees the opportunity to visit multiple tabletop presentations (15- 20 presenters in 1 room) during a 75 minute time frame. This is a great opportunity for attendees to gain numerous new and different ideas during one session. Presenters who choose this type of session have the opportunity to talk with attendees 1 on 1 or in small groups and share their shorter presentation multiple times. The tabletop sessions provide a venue for diverse type of activities, games, and the sharing of your creative ideas. Presenters will be given a table to use for display or as a workspace. This is a chance to network with your colleagues and share your passion for mathematics.

Proposals will be accepted until December 1.

The program committee will notify everyone who submitted a proposal by January 11 as to whether the proposal has been accepted.

Primary speakers are given a reduced registration rate, and must register for the conference by January 25.
