Confronting Boredom in Mathematics Classrooms: Will Common Core State Standards Make Mathematics More Engaging?
Interviews with students in widely dispersed settings, conducted informally by the speaker, have revealed that high school students generally find mathematics classes the most boring of their school experiences. For two decades, NCTM has advocated for a mathematics curriculum that included inquiry and investigation among its foundations—a curriculum that could engage students in "doing" mathematics. Unfortunately, boredom has continued to dominate the experience for too many students. Now, with the wide-scale adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), we have a new opportunity. In a report on a summer 2010 conference organized by the Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum (CSMC) titled Curriculum Design, Development, and Implementation in an Era of Common Core State Standards, authors Jere Confrey and Erin Krupa wrote that the period of adoption of CCSS "represents a critical transition period, replete with the combined opportunities and responsibilities to define the meaning of the CCSS in relation to classroom practices on a large-scale." What does this mean? Might the CCSS make mathematics more engaging for students? The speaker will unpack this idea, share thinking from the CSMC conference, offer ideas from his perspective as a publisher who is an advocate for change, talk about the CCSS "Mathematical Practices," and show examples of engaging classrooms (revealing his personal interest in technology in the process).

Geometric Reasoning and Problem Solving: Keys to Success for English Language Learners
Middle grades mathematics teachers often lack ideas and strategies for engaging English Language Learners (ELLs) in classroom mathematical reasoning and production. Based on recent research and development, this presentation makes the case that regular problem solving opportunities—particularly in geometry—combined with strategies for ensuring access for ELLs, can lead to improved ELL success in mathematics. A critical component is the commitment of mathematics teachers to attend consistently to the development of academic language through real mathematical work on the part of ELLs.

Light Masters in Mathematics Leadership: Helping Students Unlock the Doors
Motivation for learning often comes from a light master. Kathleen Parker, a 2010 Pulitzer Prize winner, calls her high school English teacher "the light master"; and holds this teacher with distinction in her life because he changed her life with a flicker of light. There are many students who never experience the turning on of lights in mathematics. A middle school student wrote, "I don't like anything that deals with math." It is hard to tell why this happens, but we as leaders and teachers are continually learning by looking at what works. This presentation will present the HOPE that emerges in the process of "Turning on the Lights." In this session, I use recent research on the relationships between middle school mathematics teachers' instructional strategies, student-identified classroom practices, and students' success in gaining conceptual understanding of mathematics.

Orchestrating Productive Mathematical Discussions: Helping Teachers Move Beyond "Showing and Telling"
This session will focus on a pedagogical model that specifies five key practices that teachers can learn in order to use student responses more effectively: (1) anticipating likely student responses prior to the lesson; (2) monitoring students' responses as they engage with the task; (3) selecting particular students to present their mathematical responses; (4) purposefully sequencing the student responses that will be displayed; and (5) helping the class make mathematical connections between different students' responses (Stein, Engle, Smith, & Hughes, 2008; Smith, Hughes, Engle, & Stein, 2009). By making purposeful choices about which responses should be presented, and in what order, teachers can maximize the chances that their mathematical goals for the discussion will be achieved.
