Every Handout & Presentation From NCSM & NCTM 2016

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.

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:

NCSM Annual Meeting


NCTM Research Preconference

If you find any material you recommend, please highlight it in the comments.

    I’m looking for the video of your presentation on Saturday. Has it not been uploaded yet? Trying to share with a colleague that couldn’t make it.
    Thanks so much!

    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.

  4. 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!
