Conference Time!

If you haven’t picked up on this yet, I love math education. And while I love connecting with folks on Twitter and through blogs, conferences are the absolutely best. Hands down, no contest.

I’m pretty pumped for this week. Here’s a few reasons why:

  1. NCTM in CA! I get to attend the biggest math conference in the land—in my home state!
  2. Desmos Happy Hour and Trivia Night. Sessions and talks are great. Conversation with colleagues is even better. Plus, trivia! Thursday, 6:30 pm, SoMa StrEat Food Park.
  3. Ignite talks. 10 presenters. Five minutes each. 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. I gave an Ignite talk at CMC North in 2014, and it was both terrifying and exhilarating. Hoping for a repeat (well, at least the exhilarating part). Also hoping to see you there. Friday, 9:30 am, 134 (Moscone).
  4. My Journey… The #MTBoS has had a massive influence on me over the last three years. Here I’ll share some insights from the journey. Friday, 12:30 pm, 3003 (Moscone).
  5. The Desmos booth! In addition to the usual Desmos booth goodness (free swag! new features!), we’re hosting Activity Builder office hours. Stop by Friday between 1 and 5 pm to hang with members of the Desmos Teaching Faculty. Bring an in-progress activity, an idea, a question, or all of the above!
  6. ShadowCon. I missed this at NCTM Boston, and am so excited to hear six inspiring speakers share their passion and issue a call to action. Friday, 5 pm, Marriott Yerba Buena 7.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

And if you can’t follow along in person, consider keeping an eye on #NCTMannual.
