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.

Do you teach small classes? If so, you know that, while some challenges, such as massive homework grading, are certainly diminished, those are replaced by new challenges such as not enough opinions, or strong personality clashes. How many ways are there to group six students, and how can CPM’s Study Team Teaching Strategies be used effectively in a class of only 3 or 4 students? In this session, we will explore how to keep things moving in our tiny yet diverse classes. You will walk away with many new ideas you can implement in your classrooms next week, to help your students develop those lifelong communication skills and learn to work together.
