How "Lingering" on Ideas about the Meaning of the Operations Can Include All Students in Significant Learning
Is it possible to replace the image of learning as "covering" territory with an image of learning as stopping to carefully study the important features of the landscape? How can we provide teachers with guidelines for "lingering" on core content about the meaning of the operations in ways that benefit both "struggling" and "excelling" students?

Monday Lunch: Improving Student Achievement in Mathematics by Using Manipulatives with Classroom Instruction
Are students learning to model mathematical concepts and regularly engaged in conceptually-based, hands-on instruction using manipulatives? Explore this exciting topic and learn how to apply the NCSM position paper recommendations integrating manipulatives into instruction effectively across all grade levels. Learn more about the Concrete-Representational-Abstract ( CRA) method of instruction and it’s successful implementation. " We remember 10% of what we hear, 30% of what we see and 90% of what we do." – Jean Piaget Sponsored in part by Math Teachers Press. Math Teachers Press is celebrating its 35th anniversary publishing the manipulative based Moving with Math program for PK - High School. Our focus continues to be our commitment to help students succeed in mathematics using the CRA method of instruction with screening and progress monitoring. Our classroom roots have made us an Rtl leader providing a blended learning program that incorporates "Best Practices" and today’s technology to meet the needs of students, teachers and administrators.

(How) Can Explicitness About Mathematical Practice Support Equitable Instruction?
The CCSS names complex mathematical goals, in terms of the ideas, skills, and practices that students are expected to learn. We will focus on three practices that can make complex mathematical work explicit for and attainable by all students: -a) making shared public records; -b) using definitions; and -c) analyzing conditions of a problem.

Overcoming Obstacles to Make Mathematics Work for All!
New content standards may improve overall student achievement, but are unlikely to reduce existing learning differentials. In order to raise the achievement of all students and simultaneously close learning differentials, your leadership efforts must simultaneously address six program shifts as well overcome persistent obstacles that have stood in the way of making mathematics work for all students. This session will address specific actions you can take to overcome these obstacles, implement highly effective mathematics programs, focus your efforts, and ensure that mathematics works for all students!

Getting to the Heart of Equity with Rigorous Tasks and Instruction that Supports a Growth Mindset
Math is, and has always been, a creative endeavor-except in school. In school, we've managed to turn math into a rote, boring chore. For centuries, mathematics was the result of man's curiosity about the world and his desire to understand and describe it. Join us as we consider good tasks that reignite curiosity and the instruction they require.

Kay Gilliland Equity Lecture
Unlike most high-performing countries in the world, our country has bet on standards, historically weak policy instruments, to drive improvements in mathematics teaching and learning. How can we, as individual teachers and as a community of teachers, ensure that our new state standards lead to dramatic improvements in mathematics learning and that they reduce long-standing opportunity gaps? The talk will present a dispassionate analysis of the realities of achievement gaps. I will then examine the untapped sources of potential energy in our school systems and communities that can be brought to bear on creating a stronger and fairer system of mathematics education. Be prepared: There will be a call to action! Homework will be assigned.

This session will focus on the effective teaching of mathematics through understanding how students learn, how to promote that learning by teaching through problem solving, and how to plan for and assess that learning. Rather than "telling" students how to do mathematics, this session will help you think about ways to build instruction that engages students in "doing math." There will be an emphasis on teaching mathematics through a multi-tiered system of support such as Response to Intervention.

Sense-Making, the Ultimate Intervention
A common but misguided intervention for struggling students is to remove the mathematics from a context and focus on procedures. This practice prevents students from using their own common sense and sense-making abilities to do mathematics. Struggling students need a contextual framework the most. Student work and video will support this assertion.

Access, Equity, and the Standards for Mathematical Practice
The NCSM PRIME Leadership Framework calls on mathematics education leaders to ensure high expectations for each student, provide strong intervention and support for each student, and orchestrate continuous improvement of achievement for each student." However, we continue to see huge disparities in academic outcomes for students of color, English learners, students with disabilities, and students from low-income communities. This presentation will explore how the Standards for Mathematical Practice, if implemented with fidelity, have the potential to improve academic outcomes for students who have been traditionally unsuccessful in mathematics.
