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 five strands.
Productive Struggle with Engaging Tasks
Math Identity and Student Agency
Technology to Enhance Learning
Leveraging the Mathematics Teaching Practices
Proposals will be accepted for two types of presentations:
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.
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.
