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.

Would you like to see your students engaging in a balanced approach of Mathematics? Imagine strengthening their conceptual and computational fluency simultaneously. Cognitively Guided Mathematics (CGI) starts with what children already know about math and build on it to move them toward deeper levels of understanding. Children will solve the problems in ways that make sense to them. During problem solving, multiple student strategies are shared and featured. CGI in CPM reinforces students' capacities to problem solve by giving them the opportunities to think in creative ways and actively form strategies using what they know, instead of passively receiving information. In CGI, the teacher's role dramatically shifts from teacher to facilitator. Engaging in CPM through elements of CGI can create the same shift.
Teachers will experience how to incorporate CGI in CPM. We will look at different components of a CGI model such as balanced mathematics for fluency, honoring student strategies, number choice in problems, anticipate student strategies, and some number talks to strengthen conceptual understanding. During our time together, participants will actively engage in all of these models through problem-solving using the CPM curriculum. It's our hope that teachers walk away with routines and structures that they can begin implementing in their CPM classroom.
