Using Geogebra in the Classroom - Bowman Dickson
 The purpose of this presentation is to share ideas on how to useGeoGebra in the classroom. First, I will talk about I use it in my ownclassroom: as a demonstrator, as dynamic worksheet and as a part of student explorations. Then, I will share some slightly more advancedGeoGebra skills that will take you far in creating your own materials,specifically the spreadsheet, modeling capabilities, sliders, tracers, and
 
uploading a file onto GeoGebraTube. Last, I want everyone to share theirideas so that we can learn from each other about this powerful program.

Math Needs to Be the Spark - James Cleveland
When planning interdisciplinary projects, math teachers need to take thelead in order to create cohesive and authentic projects, and to ensurethat the project doesn't just become psuedocontext for their math goals. Uses two major interdisciplinary projects developed at my school asexamples of how to bring all the subjects together, so math isn't left outin the cold.

Welcome to Our World (or, Come to the Dark Side)

Sam Shah
 The idea of creating a simple, sleek website to introduce math teachersinto our online world has been bandied about on twitter for a while... butas of yet, nothing has come of it. I would like this short session to be agathering of those who have ideas about how this site could be designedto be effective. Already, we have had the idea of filming of videotestimonials of what blogging/tweeting has done for our practices. We'vetalked about providing simple instructions for newbies to lurk andcomment. And we have talked about providing advice for those whowant to jump right in by blogging or tweeting.I'd like for this to be a gathering of those interested in creating a website-- a simple site whose sole purpose is to inspire math teachers to join inwhat we do (collaborate, analyze, question, commiserate, support, etc.)while making it easier for them to do so.
