                 SPEAK AT TWITTER MATH CAMP 2018

                      http://www.tmathc.com/

 The conference organizers of Twitter Math Camp 2018 (TMC18)
 invite math teachers to brainstorm what they want to hear at
 this seventh annual gathering "by teachers, for teachers."

 These topic suggestions have already been made: 

    - Finding connections/pathways in math content from 
      elementary to high school
    - Examining problem sets from Exeter Math or PCMI
    - Using metacognition
    - Exploring formative assessment to move student 
      learning forward
    - Discussing best practices for leading PD 
      sessions/workshops

 Type in your own ideas for presentations, add a "+1" after
 other entries that interest you, or suggest speakers in this
 shared, editable document:

 January 15:

                 COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION WEEK

                    http://www.csedweek.org/

 Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) boots up Monday,
 December 4.

 Self-guided tutorials include nearly 80 that emphasize math,
 such as these:

    - Frozen's Anna and Elsa in an exploration of snowflakes
    - Let's Build a Drone!
    - Wonder Woman, which draws on sequences, variables, loops, 
      and conditionals to help Diana train against her opponents
    - Bloons Trigonometry Defense
    - Coders Strike Back: an introduction to bot programming

                    https://csedweek.org/learn

 Advocating "an hour of code for every student," CSEdWeek
 occurs annually in recognition of the birthday of computing
 pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper. This year, students the
 world over have already registered to participate in over
 100,000 events:
