Excellence in Teaching Conference 2024: Making Sense of a Mathematical World
Making Sense of a Mathematical World
In the wake of the pandemic, negative reports about students’ math performance pervade the news. Eager to address this and provide the best math instruction for their students, teachers are instead met with mixed messages on everything from timed tests in elementary schools to offering calculus in high schools. Here at the University of Notre Dame, we want to address these misconceptions and focus on what truly matters: how do we help students understand math in a deep and meaningful way? So, save the date for this year’s Excellence in Teaching Conference, March 8-10, 2024, on Notre Dame’s campus, where we will empower our students to make sense of a mathematical world. We’ll hear from renowned speakers and workshop classroom strategies that help us and our students deeply understand mathematical ideas and be excited about the math we’re learning!
The Excellence in Teaching Conference is open to all participants, and most especially this year, K-12 math teachers, math leaders and coaches, and informal math educators.
A: attitudes and dispositions toward mathematics,
C: conceptual understanding of mathematics,
E: evidence-based practices for teaching mathematics
MS: Middle School
HS: High School
ML: Math Leaders and Coaches
The cost of the conference, which includes meals, is $225 through December 31, 2023. Financial support is available through your schools' Title funds or various scholarships and financial aid opportunities.
