Driving for Equity in Common Core Implementation: What Can We Borrow from Schools and Districts on the Performance Frontier?
Kati Haycock is one of the nation's leading advocates in the field of education. She currently serves as President of The Education Trust. Established in 1996, the Trust works for the high academic achievement of all students at all levels, pre-kindergarten through college. The organization's goal is to close the gaps in opportunity and achievement that consign too many low-income students and students of color to lives on the margins of the American mainstream. Known for years as a powerful force on education policy, The Trust is often described as "the most important truth teller" in American public education. But the organization also works hand in hand with educators and civic leaders in their efforts to transform schools and colleges into institutions that serve all students well. Before coming to The Education Trust, Haycock served as Executive Vice President of the Children's Defense Fund, the nation's largest child advocacy organization.

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice: A Classroom Model for Success
BIO. Jennifer Wilson has been an educator for 20 years and has spent 16 of those years teaching and learning mathematics with students and teachers at Northwest Rankin High School in Flowood, Mississippi. Jennifer and her students enter into a community of learning together at the beginning of each school year. While it is their tangible goal to study the measure of the earth (geometry) and to study change in motion (calculus), their intangible goal is to enter the practice of learning. While her students enjoy her class because she helps them develop and understand algorithms, theorems, and concepts using technology appropriately and patience infinitely, what she is really trying to help them understand is how to recognize patterns themselves as they learn to live responsibly, diagnose problems, and defend justice on their own. Jennifer has been named by four students for the Student-Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, and she is a national instructor and author for the Texas Instruments Teachers Teaching with Technology (T3) program. She also serves on the College Board's pre-AP Mathematics Development Committee. Most recently, she was named by President Obama as a recipient of the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Jennifer has a B.S. and a M.S. in mathematics from Mississippi College, and she is a National Board Certified Teacher.

Engage Them! Making Mathematics Fun and Relevant to Kids Today
Danica McKellar, best known as "Winnie Cooper" on The Wonder Years and "Elsie Snuffin" on The West Wing, is now a three-time New York Times bestselling author with her groundbreaking books, Math Doesn't Suck, Kiss My Math and Hot X: Algebra Exposed. Her newest and fourth book, Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape, hit the shelves in August 2012. In the context of fun topics like popularity and jewelry-making as well as stories from her own life, Danica shows girls and their parents how to master many of the tough math concepts that are introduced in middle school and high school - the time when young girls begin to shy away from math. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA, Danica concurrently earned her undergraduate degree in mathematics while participating original research - she co-authored a paper in the field of statistical mechanics titled, "Percolation and Gibbs States Multiplicity for Ferromagnetic Ashkin-Teller Models on Z2," which she presented at the 87th biannual Statistical Mechanics conference at Rutgers University. Her theorem has since been dubbed, "The Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem," was published in Britain's esteemed Journal of Physics, and has been featured on the front page of the Science section of The New York Times. In addition to continuing her acting career with such roles as a recurring spot on CBS's hit show How I Met Your Mother and a guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory this year, Danica voices the regular role of "Miss Martian" on Cartoon Network's Young Justice which debuted November 2010. She also recurs as a voice on Phineas and Ferb and Generator Rex, with reunites her with Wonder Years co-star Fred Savage. This year, she also filmed a starring role in the futuristic Tasmanian Devils for the SyFy Network and will appear in the Lifetime feature film Love at the Christmas Table in November 2012.
