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.

Are you a math and Disney fanatic like I am and want to learn how to incorporate movies into your CPM classroom? If so, join me in this session to learn about Pixar in a Box! Come get a behind the scenes look at how Pixar artists created the movies we all love such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo. This collaboration between Pixar and Khan Academy allows students to use math and computer science to animate bouncing balls, build swarms of robots, and make virtual fireworks explode.
