Productive Struggle with Engaging Tasks

Math Identity and Student Agency

Making Connections

Technology to Enhance Learning

Leveraging the Mathematics Teaching Practices

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, 2019.

The program committee will notify everyone who submitted a proposal by December 15 as to whether the proposal has been accepted.

Primary speakers are given a reduced registration rate, and must register for the conference by January 1.

Follow the link below to submit a proposal. Please note that presentation proposals are selected via a blinded review process. Please make sure your description does not contain any identifying information about the presenter or place of employment.
