  • SESSION 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., Hilton Bayfront, Indigo H “Must the Guide Stand on the Side? Examining (False) Dichotomies in Mathematics Education” Guide on the side vs. sage on the stage; conceptual vs. procedural knowledge; productive struggle vs. struggling learners … Does either/or thinking create distinctions between ideas that are overlapping or complementary?

Saturday, 4/6

  • SESSION 9:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., San Diego Convention Center, 24 ABC “Formative Assessment and Graphical Representation Promote Better Understanding of Challenging Topics” This workshop will model and make explicit effective formative assessment strategies while participants explore and use graph paper to visualize and find square roots, find equivalent values for radicals, convert ratios to percentages, and operate on fractions—add, subtract, multiply, and divide in the first quadrant of the Cartesian coordinate plane.

Christopher Danielson, author of How Many?

Friday, 4/5

  • INFINITY BAR 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Topic: Assessment
  • SESSION 9:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., Hilton Bayfront, Sapphire AB “The Hierarchy of Hexagons: An Example of Geometry Inquiry, Grades 3–5” The hierarchy of quadrilaterals is standard fare in geometry courses at many levels. But what about hexagons? Come join a genuine inquiry session in which we will develop hexagon classification schemes, ask about relationships and maybe even prove a few new theorems! Modifications for middle and high school classrooms will be discussed.

Mike Flynn, author of Beyond Answers

Thursday, 4/4

  • SESSION 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., San Diego Convention Center, Exhibit Hall E “Understanding Resistance in Mathematics Education: Why Change is Hard and How We Can Make It Easier” Encountering educators that are resistant to change is a common challenge for many leaders, and it is easy to slip into an unproductive “us versus them” frame of mind. In this session, we will look at the root causes of resistance and explore productive strategies that will help leaders and coaches support all teachers through the change process.
  • SHADOWCON 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. San Diego Convention Center, 20A The goal of ShadowCon is to expand access to and extend your engagement with these speakers and their ideas. So each speaker’s ten-minute talk will serve as a launching point for a unique online experience. You won’t want to miss this!

Megan Franke, author of Choral Counting & Counting Collections

Thursday, 4/4

  • INFINITY BAR 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Topic: Assessment

Friday, 4/5

  • SESSION 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., San Diego Convention Center, 20A “More Than Turn and Talk: Supporting Student Engagement in Each Other’s Ideas” Participants will engage with new research findings about how teachers who attend to children’s thinking (CGI) support student participation. The findings will focus on how teachers productively support students to engage with each other’s ideas and how that varies across the lesson. Examples from classroom practice will be shared.

Allison Hintz, author of Intentional Talk

Thursday, 4/4

  • SESSION 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Hilton Bayfront, Aqua EF “Now That We’re Talking … Let’s Make Sure We’re Listening! Grades 3–5” Mathematics classrooms are vibrant places where students’ ideas are shared through discussion. Now that we’re hearing students’ ideas, let’s make sure we’re LISTENING! Join us to think together about different ways teachers can listen to students and build a culture of listening so that students can understand and build on each other’s ideas.

Cathy Humphreys, author of Digging Deeper: Making Number Talks Matter Even More

Friday, 4/5

  • SESSION 8:00 – 9:15 a.m., Hilton Bayfront, Indigo 202 “Kindling Student Engagement Around Fractions: A High School Number Talk, Grades 8–10” In this session we examine my teaching decisions during a high school Number Talk. I had two main goals: to elicit student thinking and to kindle student interaction. We’ll stop the video at critical points in the lesson and discuss what we might do next—and why. Then we’ll watch how the lesson unfolds and consider the implications for teaching.

Geoff Krall, author of Necessary Conditions

Thursday, 4/4

  • SESSION 9:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., San Diego Convention Center, 23 BC “Routines, Lessons, Problems, and Projects: Mastering the Elements of Math Instruction” In this session, you will experience four key aspects of effective math instruction: routines, lessons, problems, and projects. We’ll work through concrete examples of each and investigate the interplay between each of these task types. You will receive a plethora of resources to find high-quality examples of each and how to develop your own.

Ruth Parker, author of Digging Deeper: Making Number Talks Matter Even More

Thursday, 4/4

  • SESSION 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., San Diego Convention Center, 20A “Number Talks as a Path to Mathematical Reasoning for All Students” Attendees will experience a revised protocol for Number Talks developed by Ruth Parker and Cathy Humphreys that is designed to engage all students as active participants in Number Talks, enhance mathematical discourse, support original mathematical ideas, and build productive learning communities.

Jessica Shumway, author of Number Sense Routines

Thursday, 4/4

  • SESSION 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., San Diego Convention Center 29D Developing Symbol Sense in Early Childhood: Maintaining Meaning and Enhancing Early Number Learning, Grades PreK–2” Understanding symbols and how they relate to quantities is critical to students’ mathematical development. Participants will learn effective and playful ways to help students link their intuitive number sense with symbolic number sense and facilitate math discussions around subitizing, unitizing, number relationships, and early algebraic reasoning.
  • SESSION 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Hilton Bayfront, Sapphire 410 “Arrays Everywhere! Engaging Students with Arrays Activities to Promote Multiplicative Reasoning, Grades 3–5” Moving from additive to multiplicative reasoning is a huge leap in mathematical understanding. Join us to learn how to effectively and playfully use arrays and word problems to help students develop their multiplicative reasoning. We will unpack these terms, share videos, and analyze student work to look at various progressions.

Kassia Omohundro Wedekind, author of Math Exchanges

Thursday, 4/4

  • SESSION 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Hilton Bayfront, Indigo BF “Hands Down, Speak Out: A Different Way of Talking in Math Class” Come learn about Hands-Down Conversations, a structure for mathematical dialogue in which students take the lead, building agency as mathematicians and constructing content understanding, as they notice, wonder, and reason about math and the world around them.

Tracy Zager, author of How to Be the Math Teacher You Wish You’d Had

Thursday, 4/4

  • SESSION 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. San Diego Convention Center, Exhibit Hall E “Going beyond Groupwork: Teaching Students to Be Mathematical Colleagues” Mathematicians often work together, seeking colleagues when they need to think aloud, gather new ideas, argue productively, and receive constructive feedback. Let’s model classroom collaborations on these genuine mathematical interactions. We’ll analyze rich classroom examples where teachers equip students to be good mathematical colleagues.
  • INFINITY BAR 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Topic: Building on Students’ Strengths
