Our 33rd Annual Conference
Join us for the 33rd annual conference. The primary emphasis of the conference is mathematics focusing on the impact and applications of technology in the classroom and the role of technology in today's and tomorrow's mathematics curricula.
Without doubt the best professional development in which I have had the opportunity to participate in years, in terms of both the math content and the teaching ideas and pedagogy.
How the conference is organized?
- You will take 2 week long courses (10 hours each). You register for specific courses of interest.
- You will attend 3 required Featured Speaker Presentations by leading mathematicians, educators and authors.
- A complete Conference-within-a-Conference (CWIC) will run from Monday through Thursday. This consists of 45-minute sessions similar to what one might find at an NCTM, NSTA or T-Cubed conference. You can attend as many CWIC sessions as you would like during free time throughout the day. CwiC sessions will be published 2 weeks prior to the conference.
Clock Hours Earned
Attendees will earn 40.5 clock hours toward their professional development goals. Clock hour letters will be distributed at the completion of the conference along with a certificate of completion.
