Teleconferences Can Bring the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Annual Meeting to You

Can't travel to San Francisco, CA for the Annual Meeting? If you can't
come to NCTM in San Francisco, let NCTM bring the Annual Meeting to you.

On Thursday, April 22, NCTM and PBS Math Line will bring live over satellite
sessions from the NCTM Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. PT (11:30 ET), officers of the Council and writers
of Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, the revised draft of
the mathematics standards, will discuss issues around standards in
mathematics. In particular, the discussion will link to the satellite
broadcasts that follow on thematic units and the role of proof, as the
panelists consider how standards can help teachers in their classrooms.

At 10:30 a.m. PT (1:30 p.m. ET), a panel discussion on Thematic Units will
explore issues of interest to every elementary and middle
school teacher. Where is the math? How do you know what students are
learning? How do you know the math in a thematic unit connects to the
curriculum? What is the role of basic skills? Leading mathematics
educators, classroom teachers and curriculum developers will engage a
nation-wide audience in these questions.

At 12:30 p.m. PT (3:30 p.m. ET), at the high school level, the challenge of
proof and its role in the reform curriculum will be addressed by
mathematicians and teachers. How does proof interface with technology?
What is the role of formal proof? Where does proof fit in the curriculum?

As a satellite participant, you also will be able to address your questions
to the panels through e-mail, by fax or by phone. The contact information
will be displayed on the screen during the program.

For those who can't participate in the live teleconference, ask your media
specialist to record the program for later use in your own in-service

The satellite coordinates for the download are: Satellite GE3 Transponder K19
