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.

The Journey to Mastery: Mastery-Based Grading in CPM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The journey to mastery is rarely linear and rates of attainment are variable. With mastery-based grading, students try tough problems, learn from mistakes, and show learning, leading to greater access and equitable learning. I grade solely on their ability to do math. They can redo assessments for full credit, increasing their feeling of control of their learning and grade. This interactive session will help you explore your thoughts about mastery-based grading and learn about my grading system.
