Conceptual Understanding and Exploration in Mathematics Via Desmos
Learn how to engage middle and high school students via collaboration and technology and help them build conceptual understanding of mathematics. Attendees will examine how Desmos, a powerful online tool set, can be incorporated to help showcase multiple representations of concepts, provide students and teachers with instantaneous feedback on the accuracy of their work, and enhance the learning of mathematics.

NCSM Vision 2020, Mathematics Education Leadership: "Surviving" the Journey!
In April 2016, my president's message entitled "NCSM Vision 2020 – Mathematics Education Leadership" began a conversation focused on "How Might We—the NCSM membership—chart a course to change the future?" During my talk we discussed 10 ideas for the future of NCSM. This year we will take a look at "How Might We" grow and support mathematics education leaders at all levels. As leaders we all realize that surviving the leadership journey (or our leadership journey) is vital for any vision to become a reality, especially when it involves mathematics. Our children are depending on us—current and future leaders—to make a difference in the teaching and learning of mathematics so that all students: access high quality mathematics learning experiences; achieve at high levels and grow academically; engage in mathematics that is meaningful, relevant, and accessible; graduate college and career-ready; and contribute to society as mathematically literate citizens.

Tracking, Equity, and the Many Paradoxes of Algebra II
What is Algebra II good for? For whom is it good? Phil Daro raised these and other questions for the Carnegie-Institute for Advanced Study Commission. Fast forward to now, and the debate about ‘what mathematics and why’ has found its way into the pages of the popular press. Is there anything district leaders can learn from this conversation? How might a district leader who prizes equity think about the question of tracking in school mathematics?

Learning About Equity in Mathematics Education Through the Lens of Indigenous Perspectives
While there are numerous perspectives situated in languages and origin stories, among Indigenous communities around the world and in North America, there are threads of commonality. I will introduce you to some of the threads that I’ve come to learn from my Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Holders, and teachers. I will then invite you to imagine the ways in which the threads might inform the recurring equity issues in mathematics education. We’ve been at this work for years now yet we still see little difference in results. Perhaps we need to ‘look’ and ‘see’ differently and be informed by perspectives that are situated in teachings of relationships, balance, and commonalities in order to imagine a new way to think about equity. These perspectives, and our subsequent actions as leaders and educators, will help us to collectively achieve the goals outlined in the NCSM/TODOS joint position statement, "Mathematics Education Through the Lens of Social Justice."

10 Instructional Tweaks Every Mathematics Leader Needs to Advocate for and Be Able to Model
In so many lessons the difference between good and great is only a matter of thoughtful and intentional shifts or tweaks. In this session we will discuss and model a set of these instructional actions including ratcheting up the depth of our questioning, more deliberately conducting review, shifting how we expect students to "practice" and how we gather evidence of learning in every lesson.

Assessing Proficiency Without Percentages: Creating Grading Systems That Cause Reflection Instead of "Point Grubbing"
When students engage in "point-grubbing" or computing the score they need on the next test to "keep their grade," it's clear that percentage-based assessment systems and the averages in grade books are preventing students from focusing on what matters most: the mathematics outcomes in our curriculum. Learn how to improve achievement and student reflection in any course by hearing how Algebra 1 teachers created innovative assessment practices.

Is Motivating Students a Productive Struggle for Your Teachers?
Teachers often ask how they can motivate their students. This is a difficult question to answer because we cannot force students to be motivated. However, by creating classrooms that are conducive to learning (Blanstein & Noguera, 2016), "we can provide a learning environment that encourages students to be curious, persistent, and confident" (Gojak, 2013). How do you encourage and motivate your teachers to create this kind of environment?

Specifically, the session will use identity and agency as framework for discussing the obstacle and ways to overcome these obstacles as described in Principles to Actions. For this session, mathematics identity includes beliefs about one’s self as a mathematics learner; one’s perceptions of how others perceive them as a mathematics learner, beliefs about the nature of mathematics, engagement in mathematics, and perception of self as a potential participant in mathematics. Agency is identity in action and the presentation of one’s identity to the world.

In this session I share my dissertation study of two high school teachers as they learned to enact Number Talks. I wanted to know what the teachers found most challenging and how coaching supported their learning. In examining the videos of classroom lessons, I noticed marked differences in how agency and authority emerged in the two classes. I hope what I learned while searching for "Why?" will be useful for teachers and coaches alike.

Designing Systems to Support Effective Mathematics Teaching K-5: The Role of Leadership Teams in Creating Change
A major hurdle to achieving a vibrant mathematics learning culture is directly connected to the content knowledge of teachers. To address this issue, we have departmentalized mathematics teaching K-5 and created a cross-grade leadership team. While each member of the team is a highly-skilled mathematics teacher, we found that creating a collaborative culture presented many challenges. We will share our journey to become an effective team.

Tricks of the Trade: Motivating Students in the Mathematics Classroom
New Math? Common Core? Teaching in the mathematics classroom has certainly changed in the last 40 years. However, what hasn't changed is the fact that students need to be motivated to learn a subject that many don't like and feel that they will never use in their lifetimes. This session will look at various strategies and techniques to motivate students. Examples will be given from the college classroom but many can be adapted to all classrooms.

All six lesson-imaging practices will be elaborated.
