Here’s What’s Happening at NCTM, 2018 in Seattle, WA!

Stenhouse authors come to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) annual conference each year bringing new resources and delivering innovative and inspiring presentations. This year will be no different with the release of new exciting titles, such as Necessary Conditions by Geoff Krall and Digging Deeper by Ruth Parker and Cathy Humphreys and an invigorating opening session with Christopher Danielson.

Below is a rundown of the not-to-miss presentations by Stenhouse authors, and don’t forget to go to booth # 415 and preview the new titles!

Wednesday, 11/28

5:30–7:00 p.m. Christopher Danielson, author of How Many? and Which One Doesn’t Belong? and Melissa Gresalfi will kick off the conference with their opening session: “Play is the Ninth Mathematical Practice!” They will explain how mathematicians’ work and children’s mathematical play are connected through exploration guided by curiosity and a pursuit of something interesting and beautiful. (Ballroom 6ABC)

Thursday, 11/29

8:00–9:15 a.m. Geoff Krall, author of Necessary Conditions will host a workshop called “Necessary Conditions: Essential Elements for Secondary Math” where participants will examine the three crucial elements of a successful secondary classroom: quality tasks, effective facilitation, and academic safety. (4 C4)

9:45–11:00 a.m. Allison Hintz, author of Intentional Talk will join two other presenters to host a workshop called “Story Time STEM: Engaging Students in Sense-Making Discussion Through Children’s Literature” where you will think about how to approach literature with a mathematical lens and support students’ sense making through discussion of stories. (608)

9:45–11:00 a.m. Christopher Danielson will present “The Hierarchy of Hexagons: An Example of Geometry Inquiry,” a general inquiry session in which participants will develop hexagon classification schemes, ask about relationships, and maybe even prove a few new theorems! (602/603)

1:30–2:45 p.m. Megan Franke, co-author of Choral Counting & Counting Collections, will explore how attending to the details and partial understandings of children’s thinking can enable teachers to engage students in learning together, making use of the resources that each student brings in her session, “Children’s Thinking (CGI): How We Notice, Support, and Extend to Enhance Equity.” (4 C4)

3:00–4:00 p.m. Michael Flynn, author of Beyond Answers, will explore how to mathematize hands-on science as participants launch rockets, mix chemicals, and program robots in his session “Modeling with Mathematics in Science Class: Maximizing Opportunities to Enrich the STEM Experience.” (4 C3)

5:00–5:30 p.m. Michael Flynn, in this burst session, “Powerful Moments in Math Class: Why Certain Experiences Stand Out and How We Create More of Them” participants will learn how to create memorable mathematical experiences for all students. (613/614)

Friday, 11/30

3:15–4:30 p.m. Elham Kazemi, co-author of Choral Counting & Counting Collections, will work with participants and a team of educators to learn, plan, and rehearse a routine instructional activity, playing out how to respond to students’ ideas and cultural funds of knowledge in the workshop, “Experience the Power of Rehearsals & Teacher Time-Outs to Grow in Our Visions of Teaching for Equity.” (606)
