My 2015 Speaking Schedule


Here is my speaking calendar for 2015 in case anybody is interested in attending Dan’s Blog: The Unplugged Experience. Some of these sessions are private, others have open registration pages (see the links), and others have waiting lists. Feel free to send an e-mail to with inquiries about any of them. It’d be a treat to see you at a workshop or a conference.

BTW. Delaware, Idaho, Nebraska, Rhode Island, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wyoming will complete my United States bingo card. If you’re the sort of person who schedules these kinds of sessions for a school or district or conference in any of those states, please get in touch.

I'm Dan and this is my blog. I'm a former high school math teacher and current head of teaching at Desmos. He / him. More here.


  1. Hi Dan!

    I am a huge fan!!

    How much do you charge for a half or full day workshop? We have a Professional Development Day for teachers coming up Feb. 4, 2015.

    Would love to have you workwith my Math Teachers grades 2-12.

  2. Interesting list of states. Personally, living north of the border, my list of states would include Hawaii, California, Florida, Nevada, Texas and other warm places. And I’d be most interested in working with their teachers in December, January and February. I think I could help them most in those months.

  3. Come to Tennessee!! I teach in Memphis :) If you’re interested let me know and I’ll see what I can do with my CMO!

  4. When I clicked on “Boston” on your speaking calendar it brought be to the NCTM national conference site, and I noticed that you’re booked for the day before the conference begins. Is your talk associated with the NCTM conference? Will it be open to conference attendees? Any information you can provide is much appreciated!

  5. We would love to have you in Boise! I guess I mean me but I am sure our distict and neighboring ones would love to join in. I would be happy to fund the pondering and estimation of volume after your talk! Love what your doing for math education!

  6. Dan –

    You’ve been in contact with some of our faculty in the past, and we’re hoping we can arrange for you to spend a day at EPS sometime in the 2015-2016 academic year.

    Can you put me in touch with whomever I should contact about your availability?

    Thank you – Terry Macaluso, PhD
    Head of School

    Is the Austin TX conference open for attendance? I am math high school teacher who first learned about perplexity through Brendan Kelly, and was fascinated by the idea of contributing to the revolution of math ed in the US. BTW I’m graduating this Summer from Harvard Extension School with a masters in mathematics for teaching, and would like to start a math circle here in South Texas that concentrates on creating perplexity filled Project based teaching lessons.
