Day 1: Going deep in mathematics allows for different perspectives of mathematical ideas. Through the perspectives comes an increase in conceptual understanding followed by procedural learning in mathematics.  Teaching the depth of the content also builds a more positive student identity in mathematics.  Understanding the how’s and the why’s will better support learning as students move through the grades in school Day 2: Providing positive mathematical experiences affirms students’ identities as doers of mathematics and problem solvers. How do we build positive experiences for students in math class?  In turn, students will be determined and persistent mathematical thinkers. What other characteristics will these students gain from these experiences? How does confidence in mathematics support learning in other content areas?

Register for the 9th Annual WMC Mathematical Proficiency for Every Student (MPES) conference, and join national and state educators to discuss detailed action steps that teachers and stakeholders need to take to reach the shared goal of improving the mathematics education of all students.   Administrators attend FREE with one school/district paid registration (registration code will be in confirmation email)!
