It will probably take more than one post to unwind my last week of conferencing, but let’s start here. I sent a script through the conference programs and pulled out every uploaded handout and slidedeck.

- NCSM Annual Meeting [huge zip file]
- NCTM Research Preconference
- NCTM Annual Meeting

After skimming through every file, I’ll note that the uploads skew *heavily* towards primary. So if you’re looking for those resources, you’re in luck.

In case your interests follow my own, here are the presentations and papers I’ve pulled aside for a closer reading:

I’m hoping to post a screen-cast of the critical parts of our workshop that you can’t easily understand from the slides within the next week or so.

Thanks so much!

Danielle, not yet, but I’ll be sure to let you all know when it arrives.## Xavier

April 20, 2016 - 12:34 am -Wow!. A hugh effort to read them all ,-)

## Jennifer Malone

April 20, 2016 - 8:56 am -I would also like to know when the video of your Saturday session becomes available. I can tell my teachers to “delete their textbooks” but your illustrations and examples were spot on. I would love to show them how easy it is to start with a visual and later add in the math. Thanks for all you do.

## Tina

April 21, 2016 - 8:58 pm -I attended your talk at Sonoma State yesterday and played off your idea of locating the dots. We are working on equations of circles so I made the dots in a circular formation and had my students try and describe which dot they selected. they loved it, felt like they were playing a game. I also used the idea of getting wrong answers. I made sure they substituted points into the circle equation that were not on the circle (which the book neglected to do). There is a wealth of information here and I am looking forward to exploring it more as well as watching your upload of your Sat. talk. lThank you!

Tina, awesome work. Understanding where the wrong answers live is as important as calculating the right ones.@

Everybody who asked, my talk from #NCTMAnnual is now online. Enjoy!## Elizabeth (@cheesemonkeysf)
