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.

A Thinking Classroom in Action

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

Do you wish you students would engage quickly in problem solving and be willing to try different strategies? What if you could see the progress of each group at the same time? Imagine creating a thinking classroom where student discourse and leading discussions flowed naturally out of the problems students are working on! This will be an interactive session to learn how to increase success in formative assessment, the amount and level of mathematical discourse, and leading discussions based on student work. Experience and explore proven methods and reasons to implement problem solving on vertical whiteboards with random groups.
