Gearing Up for CMC North 2014

This Friday a host of passionate teachers will converge on Pacific Grove, CA for the California Mathematics Council’s northern conference. I’m presenting a session on Desmos (almost identical to the one I gave at CMC South in October). I’m also set to give an Ignite talk Saturday evening. (Super excited for that, and more than a little nervous.)

Whether you’re attending and want to keep an eye out for others in the MTBoS, or you’re not attending and you’re interested in stoking your math conference jealousy, here’s where you’ll probably find me:
