Pre-Conference Workshop: Becoming the Math Teacher You Wish You'd Had

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop is dedicated to exploring new thinking from vibrant classrooms. You’ll grapple with big ideas: How is taking risks inherent to mathematics? How do mathematicians balance intuition and proof? How can teachers value both productive mistakes and precision? 
You’ll also find dozens of practical teaching techniques you can try in your classroom right away—strategies to stimulate students to connect ideas; rich tasks that encourage students to wonder, generalize, conjecture, and persevere; routines to teach students how to collaborate. All teachers can move toward increasingly authentic, delightful, robust mathematics teaching and learning for themselves and their students. 
Note: Additional fee to attend. Contact 575-737-8446 to add this workshop to your existing registration.
