    General
    Tyrone Howard

    Tyrone Howard

    In this session, Professor Tyrone Howard will address the needs for why greater efforts for equity in mathematics are needed, and how it can be done. Using examples of evidence-based approaches in teaching and learning, this presentation will offer strategies, resources, and solutions that math teachers can implement to create authentic, culturally sustaining, and equitable learning environments for all students. This session will also give particular attention to school leaders and practitioners, and what can be done to place a particular focus on those student populations who are most marginalized.

    There are many factors to consider when developing a classroom culture and environment designed to nurture students’ mathematics identity and agency. At the heart of this work is the task of building positive, productive, and supportive teacher-to-student and student-to-student relationships, which is often dependent on two critical factors, “Who is teaching? and “Who are the learners?” (Johnson and Williams, 2015).
    Bold leaders have conversations that support teachers as they identify, monitor, and begin to address their implicit biases; thus allowing them to not only look in the mirror at themselves but also learn about their students. Research supports the salience of identity and purpose centered learning as essential levers for equitable access of historically marginalized students.  This session will examine these ideas as educators seek to expand learning opportunities.

    In order to achieve our NCSM vision for equity and lead teachers of mathematics into behaviors that advance the learning of all students, mathematics education leaders empower and nurture a culture of productive professionalism. To lead a learning culture of continuous growth and change, we first embrace the adversity faced each year, teach others how to avoid emotional exhaustion, create a relationally intelligent and trusting culture, and model emotional and social wellness for others.

    Regular Presentation
    General

    Girls and women tend to hold lower mathematics self-concepts. Join us to explore self-portraits and Letters to Math to uncover the types of critical events that shape the identity of our middle school students and preservice teachers. As bold math leaders, we must recognize that we have a healthy math identity and need to develop empathy and understanding for the real anxiety others feel about math in order to create equitable and authentic learning environments.

    Monday 9:30am - 10:30am
    Platinum 3
    Presidents Exchange
    General

    Let’s challenge ourselves to imagine or reimagine mathematics teaching and learning that fosters powerful mathematical pondering. What does it mean to deeply ponder problems in mathematics? What structures support and empower students and teachers in this vision and which ones are a hindrance and should be dismantled? Let’s consider how leaders can assist in developing a vision that shifts from imagining what this should look like to making it a reality.

    To support the mathematics learning of all students, effective teachers establish an environment where students regularly engage in productive mathematics discourse. Purposeful planning for mathematical discourse, the questions to ask, and how to use representations to support understanding and discussion are important components of this environment. In this interactive session, participants will engage in strategies to help teachers plan and facilitate productive mathematics discourse while promoting problem solving, reasoning, and critical thinking skills.

    Modeling is the Mathematics of the Future: Build the Foundation in Elementary Grades with Operation Sense

    Grand G/H
    Regular Presentation
    K-5 Elementary

    Cultivating mathematically capable citizens requires visionary leadership. Posing real problems and building mathematical models to solve them, especially in elementary grades, emphasizes mathematizing. Building from number sense, operation sense launches mathematical modeling. Between problem-posing and model-building, the mathematizing step is overlooked, not even included in the steps. Once a problem is posed and quantities identified, the mathematical model doesn’t build itself. Knowing what situations are typically solved by which operators is essential background knowledge.

    Novice teachers of mathematics always need support. But, in 2022 our youngest teachers need a different kind of support than their older colleagues. Teachers under age 26 are members of Generation Z, a generation that sees and experiences teaching differently. In this session we will unpack the defining characteristics of Gen Z, ways those characteristics shape the work of Gen Z teachers in classrooms, and supports for mentoring and coaching our youngest math teachers.

    Much of how classrooms look and much of what happens in them today is guided by institutional norms laid down at the inception of an industrial-age model of public education. These norms have enabled a culture of teaching and learning that is often devoid of student thinking. Building Thinking Classrooms is a reaction to this reality and has been shown to increase thinking in all settings. In this session I look at some of the downstream benefits and challenges of building a thinking classroom as well as some of the ways in which teachers can be supported in their efforts to build a thinking classroom.

    Developing Strong Relationships to Inspire Reluctant Administrators to Equally Value and Support Quality Mathematics and Reading Instruction

    Tuesday 11:15am - 12:15pm
    Grand G/H
    Regular Presentation
    General

    How do you influence administrators to equally value and support mathematics in the same manner as reading instruction? Learn the five critical skills needed to develop strong relationships with administrators. Through strong relationships, help guide administrators to develop a shared mathematics vision giving mathematics the same value and support as reading instruction. Tools and resources will be shared to determine how to measure the effectiveness of the vision. Challenges and successes will be discussed.

    New elementary teachers have so many things to think about in regard to teaching mathematics. Are they considering how to build a mathematical community that invites each and every student into the learning? This aspect of teaching math is foundational, but often overlooked. Together we’ll explore how instructional coaches and building leaders can support teachers as they work to intentionally establish classroom communities that nurture students’ identities as learners of mathematics.

    Dr. Ilana Horn

    Building off of two decades of research, I have developed a theory of experienced teachers’ learning of ambitious and equitable mathematics instruction (Horn & Garner, 2022). Our theory accounts for teachers’ lived realities and experiences in the workplace. After presenting these ideas, I argue that the framework of “best practices” actually inhibits teacher learning, illustrating with some examples.

    Regular Presentation
    General

    Only a third of students are proficient in maths, teachers have been demoralized by unrealistic demands put on their time, there has never been a more important time for improving outcomes for everyone in education.  Yet positive change is frequently blocked by those wanting to preserve the status quo. In this session I will talk about my experience with those working against change, including parents who behave badly, TV hosts and commentators, STEM faculty, and the group I refer to as math elitists – those who want to keep high mathematics achievement only for students. I will share some stories of resistance and strategies for change, as we work to make mathematics equitable and accessible for all.
