Tuesday Breakfast - Mathematics-Generated Waves: Attributes of "Constructive Interference" Leadership
Constructive interference is a property of waves that results in high- energy waves.  Based on her "interfering" leadership experiences and research of more than 35 years, Nita will present three critical attributes of effective mathematics leadership:  1) a focus on meaningful understanding based on connections, 2) the importance of contextual considerations, and 3) the necessity for productive struggle and learning.  As you observe her illustrations of these attributes, compare and contrast your own "interfering" examples.

The Importance of Play in Mathematics Education
To play is a universal human desire. It's also an important component of what it means to do mathematics at any level. Through examples, we'll discuss why we play, what's distinctive about mathematical play, what benefits it has for students, its connection to college and careers, and how we can incorporate play into our teaching.

Bridging the Gap Between Professional Learning and the Classroom
Ever wonder why teachers don't implement what they learn from professional learning opportunities? Have you ever led trainings with participants saying, "Those were great ideas, I can't wait to implement them," only for the ideas to not take hold? Following a Chinese Proverb, "I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand," we will explore a professional learning model where teachers get hands-on experiences to implement in classrooms immediately.

Coaching for Equity: Research-Based Approaches to Supporting High-Quality Math Content and Instruction for ALL Students
We will consider what research says about providing ALL children access to high-quality mathematics content and instruction and how to operationalize these findings through instructional materials and organization, classroom observation and debriefing processes, and so on. We will engage participants in discussion of how these findings and applications are consistent (or not) with common differentiation practices such as personalized learning, homogenous vs. heterogenous grouping, leveled assignments, choice menus, open-ended tasks, and design tasks.

Supporting Teachers in Using Purposeful Questions to Promote Meaningful Discourse
Research shows that metacognition improves student learning. Discourse in the mathematics classroom helps students to clarify thinking, make connections among concepts and processes, and develop deep understanding through talking about their thinking and listening to the ideas of others. Meaningful discourse that promotes metacognition is best accomplished through the tasks we use and the questions we ask. Let's look at how we can we support teachers in posing questions that promote meaningful discourse.

What Do they Know and What Can they Do: Digging Deeper into Assessment
What do we communicate to students when we assess them, and does it help their learning progress? Too often teachers actually inform students about what they're not doing or not understanding, especially when it comes to summative assessment. What if assessment focused on what students CAN do? We will dig deeper into assessment so that as leaders we can help teachers in terms of what they assess, how they assess, and when they assess.

Growth Mindset and Mistakes: Opportunities to Increase Student Learning
Students who literally "learn from their mistakes" and view these mistakes as positive rather than negative experiences can develop not only a growth mindset, but also develop opportunities for deeper learning. Students must make mistakes and correct them to learn mathematics deeply, and they will become open to investigating mistakes if they view them as a step toward mastery.

Investigating the Use of Videoconferences, Interactive Applets, and Screencasts in Blended Professional Development for Mathematics Teachers of English Learners
Mathematics teachers of students who are English Learners (ELs) continue to need opportunities to learn how to best support the classroom mathematical communication and learning of critical mathematics content by students who are ELs. It is important to consider new formats for this teacher professional learning. Strategic blended-learning mechanisms for supporting teacher engagement and learning will be explored and discussed, focused on a professional development program for middle-grades mathematics teachers.

Kay Gilliland Lecture: Mathematics Leaders ‘Answering the Call' for Educational Change
Mathematics leaders are in an important and unique position to set priorities, influence change, and impact conversations. Recent unfortunate social events in this nation have affected the lives of the education community, especially its students. Understanding the historical perspective of these events is key. Silence in the face of injustice conveys the impression that prejudicial behavior is condoned or not worthy of attention. Today there are ‘calls' for professional learning offerings that include understanding and respecting the lived experiences and realities of students.  There are implications for leaders to build stronger relationships with teachers and each other. Additionally, there is new learning to be considered for our work.

Begin with meaning to better understand mathematics. The geometry of solar parabolic cookers, satellite dishes, and spy listening devices is rarely explored by students in upper grade mathematics classes. Context often helps students (and their teachers) understand better the mathematics of reflection, congruent triangles, the distance formula, and modeling while the geometry helps students understand the context.
