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.

Dr. Leslie Dietiker is an assistant professor of Mathematics Education at Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. She currently teaches mathematics and pedagogy courses to future high school mathematics teachers. She is an elected board member of the International Society of the Design and Development of Education (ISDDE) and is on the Editorial Board of the American Educational Research Journal (AERJ), a leading publication of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Dr. Dietiker also designs and leads professional development for schools and districts in the Boston region.Prior to coming to BU, Dr. Dietiker taught high school mathematics and computer science for 17 years at a public high school in San Francisco, California. She received National Board Certification and was a co-author and managing director of seven CPM textbooks, including Algebra Connections and Geometry Connections. Dr. Dietiker’s research focuses on the theory of curriculum, particularly with regards to its aesthetics and structural dimensions. Other areas of professional interest include supporting teacher curricular work, such as ways to use textual materials and plan lessons. One study, entitled Characteristics of Interesting Mathematics Lessons (funded by the William T. Grant Foundation), is focused on learning how the mathematical plots of algebra lessons that students indicate are interesting differ from those that are not characterized as interesting by students. Recently, she led a research project entitled Enhancing the Potential of Intended Curriculum (funded by the CPM Educational Program) that studied the variations in how written curriculum is implemented.
