Revolving Credit: Taking Your Card for a Spin (6-12)
This is a hands-on, minds-on session that revolves a credit card (or any rectangle) around an axis to obtain common and not-so-common 3-D shapes. This low-floor, high-ceiling task allows for mathematical discourse, 3-D visualization, and the application of volume and surface area knowledge.

"Show Me" Math Projects (6-8)
Learn about math projects that go beyond a "longer worksheet", where students do research and create a product to show their understanding of a given math standard. Explore examples of student projects. I will be sharing how Show Me projects are a work in progress and they are adapted each year.

Respecting the Transcendental Functions
Trigonometric functions are one of the only transcendental functions in high school mathematics. However, proving identities, is done almost exclusively with algebraic manipulation. Let’s explore how we can honor the transcendental nature of these functions while discovering and proving identities!

The Power of Noticing to Cultivate Identity 9-12+)
Asking students to notice is a small change that can have a big impact in your classroom! In this session, I will share a few ways I’ve used student noticing in my classroom to help students understand that their ideas matter, and that they are capable of understanding mathematics.

Bringing Public Math to Life (K-5)
We love math and we love our community! We share a passion for making math meaningful outside of the classroom and challenged ourselves to do math in public spaces this year! Join us to find out simple ways that you could do the same, as well as, do math together and brainstorm ideas for the future!

KEYNOTE Building Thinking Classrooms (PreK-12+)
Much of how classrooms look and much of what happens in them today is guided by institutional norms laid down at the inception of an industrial-age model of public education. These norms have enabled a culture of teaching and learning that is often devoid of student thinking. In this session, I present some of the results of over 15 years of research into how teachers can transform their classrooms from a space where students mimic to where students think. The practices discussed will intertwine with, and make extensive references to, the recently published book, Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics.

Due to the capacity of the conference rooms we will utilize the Ballroom and livestream in the Auditorium.

Peter's presentation will be followed by a Q & A. Please post your question for him here: https://bit.ly/ictmbtc
