2016 Keynote Speakers


Greg Tang is the New York Times best-selling author of a groundbreaking series of math picture books from Scholastic that includes The Grapes of Math. He's also the inventor of the internationally acclaimed math app Kakooma and the creator of the popular, online math site Greg has been called the "math missionary" for the dedication and passion he has shown in sharing his love of math with students, teachers, and parents.  (Friday)

Alex Dixon was a normal, bright, healthy girl, when a sudden onset of a mysterious illness took over her life. Months of treatments failed to provide relief from acute pain and muscle spasms. Doctors across the country were at a loss. A last attempt at treatment – brain surgery – stopped the spasms but caused a massive stroke. At age 12, Alex had to relearn everything. Now 18, Alex shares her story and her amazing recovery. She provides a personal account of strategies for supporting a student with special needs to learn mathematics with depth.

Juli Dixon, Alex’s mom is professor of mathematics education at the University of Central Florida. A prolific writer, she has published numerous textbooks, books, and articles as well as delivered keynote presentations throughout the United States. Juli used everything she knew about teaching and learning to “re-teach” Alex. Her perspectives on “what worked” are relevant to current issues in mathematics education in general as well as to teaching students with special needs.

John Mighton, OC, is a mathematician, author, playwright, and the founder of JUMP Math, a charitable organization that works to educate students in mathematics . He tirelessly volunteers his time and expertise at JUMP Math as the lead curriculum developer for the JUMP Math Student Assessment and Practice Books and Teacher's Resources. He also donates all proceeds from publications to JUMP Math. He is the author of The Myth of Ability and The End of Ignorance.  Mighton also advised Matt Damon and Ben Affleck on the script for Good Will Hunting, and as an actor in the film. His one major line is a reference to his main idea in The Myth of Ability: that most people never get a chance because a teacher does not take the time to show them how to learn.  (Sponsored by the Brookhill Institute of Mathematics)  (Thursday and Friday)


John SanGiovanni is an elementary mathematics instruction facilitator for the Howard County Public School System in Maryland. He is currently serving a three year term on the Board of Directors of the NCTM.  He is also an adjunct instructor and frequent speaker at both regional and national conferences.  John has written extensively on implementing the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice in the K-8 classroom.

Sandy Atkins, Ph. D., is the owner and Executive Director of Creating AHAs, LLC. An inspiring speaker, Dr. Atkins is committed to finding those ‘aha moments’ when mathematical connections are made by teachers and students.  She is the author of Creating Fraction and Decimal AHAs (available April 2015) and Creating a Language Rich Math Class (available Fall 2015). With particular interest in effective mathematics intervention, Sandy works closely with teachers across the United States to help them pinpoint student disconnects and close mathematical concept gaps.


Michael Todd Edwards, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He is the co-editor of the GeoGebra North American Journal and co-director of the GeoGebra Institute of Ohio. Dr. Edwards' research interests focus on the teaching and learning of school mathematics with technology (specifically dynamic mathematics software), ethical issues surrounding the use of free software and the free software movement, and writing as a vehicle to learn mathematics at all levels of instruction.  (Thursday and Friday)
