Virtual Conference on Mathematical Flavors
August 1st through August 29, 2018
There is a vibrant community of math educators that share their thinking on blogs. And often times, those posts are on particular lessons, teaching strategies, organizational strategies, or straight-up explorations of math. Things that get written usually engage with the micro-level. A day, a unit, a teacher move, a mathematical concept. The purpose of this conference is to take a moment to zoom out and connect the micro to the macro, to connect our everyday pedagogy to our kids’ conceptions of mathematics.
“Math” means very different things to each of our kids. And as teachers, we create spaces and experiences which shape our kids understanding of what mathematics is. So the key question we are asking in this conference is “What flavor of mathematics are you serving up in your classroom?” The extended and more formal prompt is here. It is a truism is that there is no one valid way to teach math. We’d love for you to become a presenter and give the world a taste of your classroom’s mathematics! How does your everyday work affect how your kids understand what math is all about? I hope you’ll join us by adding your presentation to the schedule below!
