2015 Conference‎ > ‎

Conference Themes

In response to participant feedback from last year, this year’s highlighted themes will be:

Embracing Challenge in Learning Mathematics. This theme is focused on the questions of how we build opportunities for students to struggle productively and how we help our students to see the important role of productive struggle in learning mathematics.

Reasoning and Proof in Mathematics Content Courses for Pre-service Teachers. This theme is focused on examining how we teach proof and reasoning, the spectrum of what “proof” and “reasoning” can mean, and how we decide where to set the bar for rigor with different populations of pre-service teachers.
