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

"Same/Different": A Mathematical Language Routine for Connecting Strategies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The "Same/Different" discourse prompt has gained popularity as a means for students to explore visual models of foundational concepts. Two images or methods are presented and students are asked simply, "What is different?" and "What is the same?"

This session moves the Same/Different structure into math strategies as students make connections between two presented methods, shares resources for samples of Same/Different prompts, and guides teachers to the process of designing their own.
