Professional Development Goals: the activities for the day are designed
for you to work collaboratively with others. Participants will:
-

Understand CCSS practices and the mathematical processes
associated in teaching
Learn new technology integration to engage students in learning
and develop mathematical critical thinking
Get involved in different activities that will transfer to the classroom
in developing and implementing new strategies

Who should attend? Secondary math teachers and coaches would benefit
the most from this conference.

Keynote Speaker: Dan Meyer, Math in 3 Acts - How do we turn the world
outside the math classroom into a math problem that's both fun and
challenging, not boring and easy? Dan taught high school mathematics for 7
years and is currently working on his doctoral fellowship at Stanford
University. He is passionate about curriculum design and getting students to
think and teachers to learn.

GeoGebra – Connecting Algebra to Geometry: Link algebra and
geometry by using the exciting components of GeoGebra. A detailed lesson
will be provided to assist you in developing your sketch. Please download
GeoGebra onto your laptop before the seminar.

Toontastic: Toontastic is an animated story generating app. Participants
will learn how to take a simple app and have students create a story
involving a math problem. Participants will see how the common core
standards come to life as students are required to justify their thinking and
explain their thought process in solving different problems. If you have an
iPad or iPod please download the Toontastic app., if not, limited iPads will be
available for participants to share.

Get the Math: From the website: “Get the Math combines video and web
interactivity to help middle and high school students develop algebraic

thinking skills for solving real-world problems. Drawing on conventions of
popular reality TV shows, video segments begin with profiles of young
professionals, who then pose challenges connected to their jobs to two
teams of teens. Viewers are encouraged to try the challenges themselves
using interactive tools provided on the Get the Math website before
returning to the video to see the teams’ solutions. Students can further
explore the same, as well as extended, algebraic concepts through additional
interactive challenges on the website.”
