Attend Our NCSM Sessions
The Math Forum community has been developing mathematical communication and problem solving skills every day since 1992. Attend one of our sessions to learn more about the specific work we are doing to help improve mathematics education.
- Monday, April 13, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
- Room 157 B
- Many states are adopting new assessments that focus on students' ability to solve complex problems and explain their thinking by typing their thoughts into the computer. Learn how the Math Forum’s online Problems of the Week, along with activities from our recent book, give students practice with online environments and the mathematical practices.

Using Video and Storytelling to Illustrate Teaching with the Mathematical Practices
- Wednesday, April 15, 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM
- Room 157 A
- Are you looking for videos that show what a classroom can look and sound like when students are the ones doing the mathematical practices? Videos that illustrate how master teachers facilitate students to construct viable arguments or look for structure? This session presents an online video archive and accompanying professional development activities.
- Wednesday, April 15, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
- Room 151 AB
- Join us for fast, informative, and fun talks where mathematics educators light up the room with fresh ideas in mathematics teaching and learning. Each speaker gets 5 minutes to talk about whatever ignites their passion, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds, whether they are ready or not. This year our speakers will be Jim Dooley, Annie Fetter, Norma Gordon, Grace Kelemanik, Chris Luzniak, Jasmine Yin-Ying Ma, Carl Oliver, Laurel Pollard, Max Ray, John Staley, and our emcee, Suzanne Mitchell.
