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.

Keynote - From Counting to Calculus: What Stays the Same?
We tend to think of the work of calculus students as being very different from that of kindergarteners, but it really shouldn't be so. Furthermore, it has consequences for who has access to and participates in the field. All learners can function as mathematicians. We'll examine this claim through tasks and student ideas across the K-12 curriculum.

An Open Conversation About Assessment in CPM Classrooms
As our district has started the process of implementing CPM, we have found that how we assess students is changing and even our philosophy around assessment is evolving. We will share our journey so far, and we invite you to share your story of change in the way you assess students or to ask questions that you may have around assessments. Our hope is that an open discussion around assessment in CPM classrooms will help us all come to a better understanding and walk away with some new ideas.

Table Talk Session:  A Table Talk is an informal conversation on a topic, such as a conversation at a table during and after a meal. There is no set agenda, just the opportunity to share thoughts and ideas.  This Table Talk will focus on co-teaching in a math class from the different lenses of the special ed teacher and the regular ed teacher.  We thought learning from mistakes was only good for the kids to do, now come and have a discussion with us on what works, a work in progress, and the unknown.  We have team-taught together for two years now and have each co-taught for a total of 6 years.

Why Might Using Math in Physics Class be so Hard?
A goal of math teaching is to equip students to apply math in a range of contexts. In this session participants will consider some of the challenges students face when trying to translate their knowledge of right triangle trigonometry to physics courses. Participants will 1) work on common textbook math tasks and physics tasks that use right triangle trigonometry, 2) discuss how students might experience the math in these tasks differently, and 3) brainstorm implications for math teaching.

The Journey to Mastery: Mastery-Based Grading in CPM
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.

How many ways are there to group six students, and how can CPM’s Study Team Teaching Strategies be used effectively in a class of only 3 or 4 students? In this session, we will explore how to keep things moving in our tiny yet diverse classes.

Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) & CPM Collaboratively
Would you like to see your students engaging in a balanced approach of Mathematics? Imagine strengthening their conceptual and computational fluency simultaneously. Cognitively Guided Mathematics (CGI) starts with what children already know about math and build on it to move them toward deeper levels of understanding. Children will solve the problems in ways that make sense to them. During problem solving, multiple student strategies are shared and featured. CGI in CPM reinforces students' capacities to problem solve by giving them the opportunities to think in creative ways and actively form strategies using what they know, instead of passively receiving information. In CGI, the teacher's role dramatically shifts from teacher to facilitator. Engaging in CPM through elements of CGI can create the same shift.
Teachers will experience how to incorporate CGI in CPM. We will look at different components of a CGI model such as balanced mathematics for fluency, honoring student strategies, number choice in problems, anticipate student strategies, and some number talks to strengthen conceptual understanding. During our time together, participants will actively engage in all of these models through problem-solving using the CPM curriculum. It's our hope that teachers walk away with routines and structures that they can begin implementing in their CPM classroom.

Mathematical Doubts and Problem Posing as a Way to Understand Epistemic Needs of Students
The study aims to elucidate the epistemic needs of students in mathematics. Broadly speaking, by epistemic needs I mean, what is it that students are drawn to know and their perceptions of what can be known and how to know it. Using the notion of doubt and its relation with mathematical problem posing, I will discuss research findings of: (1) What types of initial doubts emerge when students explore open obscure artifacts? (i.e., what are students drawn to know?) (2) What doubts are more often taken up by the students and in what ways do students mathematize their initial doubts to pose meaningful math problems? (i.e., students’ perceptions of what can be known and how to know it?)

Let's look at how technology can support each of the 5 practices, from anticipating, all the way through connecting your students' work with the learning goals. Whether you can name all 5 practices backward in your sleep or have never heard of them, we'll have something to learn together. You'll experience them as a student and then we'll dive into all of the techniques that can make the 5 practices come to life.
