2019 CPM Teacher Conference!

We host this conference as an investment in the most important educational resource that America has—the classroom teacher. We are honored that you chose to join us. It is our hope that what you saw, heard, did, and learned at this conference will leave you motivated and inspired to continue the pursuit of mathematics with your students and colleagues.

We extend a thank you to those who were willing to present their ideas and strategies with their colleagues. We hope you enjoyed your time in the beautiful San Francisco area and left energized to continue empowering your students. We hope to see you next year!

Consider speaking at the 2020 CPM Teacher Conference: February 22 & 23, 2020
Share your experience and the lessons you have learned teaching students how to reason, solve problems, and communicate mathematically.

Speaker proposals are due by May 15, 2019.

As lead speaker, you will receive one complimentary registration and a conference grant to help defray the cost of the conference. The amount of the conference grant has yet to be determined.

Why Might Using Math in Physics Class be so Hard?

A goal of math teaching is to equip students to apply math in a range of contexts. In this session participants will consider some of the challenges students face when trying to translate their knowledge of right triangle trigonometry to physics courses. Participants will 1) work on common textbook math tasks and physics tasks that use right triangle trigonometry, 2) discuss how students might experience the math in these tasks differently, and 3) brainstorm implications for math teaching.
