ATMNE 2017 – slides are up!

Hi All, ’tis that time of year again.  I had a fantastic time presenting at the annual conference for the Association of Teachers of Math of New England last Friday, and I’m posting my slides below for whoever can use them.

I love this conference so much – a huge cadre of people who love math and children, two of my favorite things, all gathered together under one roof.  This year’s highlights for me were Carole Tilley’s session “Using Games for Assessment” – so many new games to try out! – and Tracy Zager’s workshop, “Teaching Students to Make Mathematical Connections.”  I think my new mantra may be “what do you wonder?”  This conference always leaves me feeling so in awe of the talent of math teachers, and so aware of how much I still have to learn.

I am glad that my sessions, “Emotion and Learning: Threat and Anxiety in Math Cognition” and “Mindfulness and Math Education” were so well attended.  While we can always, always learn how to be better math teachers, none of that matters if our students are not emotionally able to learn in our classes.  Please, please reach out if you have any questions about the sessions, or if I can be of help in any way at your school.
