MSU Math Ed at the 2019 NCTM Research Conference and Annual Meeting

  • Mar 27, 2019

2019 NCTM Annual Conference LogoSeveral MSU Mathematics Education faculty members will be presenting at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Research Conference and Annual Meeting next week. This year the events will be held in San Diego, bringing together classroom teachers, administrators, mathematics teacher educators, mathematicians, and researchers from around the world.

During the NCTM Research Conference on April 1-3, Gail Burrill, AJ Edson, Elizabeth Phillips, and Yvonne Slanger-Grant will be sharing their research and experiences. The NCTM Research Conference is an opportunity to network with fellow mathematics education researchers at sessions that address the field's most important topics. Attendees and presenters will also learn about and discuss the innovations and findings that influence the future of mathematics education. All sessions for the Research Conference will be held at the San Diego Convention Center.

Gail Burrill and Amy Parks will be presenting at the NCTM Annual Meeting, which runs from April 4-6.

The NCTM is the world’s largest mathematics education organization, with 60,000 members and more than 230 Affiliates throughout the United States and Canada. The NCTM advocates for high quality mathematics teaching and learning for each and every student.

If you are interested in a PhD in Mathematics Education, please visit us at the booth at the NCTM Annual Meeting in the Exhibit Hall, Thursday, April 4 through noon on Saturday, April 6. Our booth number is 1124A, and is just behind the NCTM Store and across from Texas Instruments. We hope to see you there!

Connecting Math Educators across the Globe: Resources, Lessons, and Future Work

The International Seminar on Math Education has been a venue where teachers from many countries learn how math teaching is affected by factors such as culture, language, and policies. We will share resources and lesson plans, lessons learned, and we will brainstorm ideas for moving forward with the work of connecting math educators from around the globe.

The Joy of Number Talks

Since our 2016 NCTM plenary, Joy: The Zeroth Mathematical Practice, we have continued to explore joyful experiences in mathematics teaching and learning. In this session we look at ways number talks offer equitable opportunities for children to participate in mathematics and why those equitable structures provide a foundation for joyful experience.

10-12 Session

The Joy of dx: Cool Connections in Calculus

Helping students build robust conceptual knowledge in calculus means making connections between the big ideas: limits, derivatives, integrals, and approximations. Using dynamic technology across multiple representations can make these fundamental connections both visual and interactive, including the fundamental theorem of calculus.

#563, 4:30-5:30 pm, Hilton Bayfront, Indigo BF

8-10 Session

Using Inquiry and Real Data to Build Thinking Classrooms

What does a thinking classroom look like? How can we make our classrooms spaces where students are actively engaged in thinking about and doing meaningful mathematics? Participants will do some math including problems based on real data and explore what contributes to an environment focusing on students and their learning.
