Keynote Speaker Cathy Seeley, NCTM Past President and Author

Keynote Address - "Who's Doing the Talking? Using Student Conversation to Drive Mathematical Learning"

How can we create classrooms that engage every student in rich tasks that stimulate their thinking and lead to lasting learning? We may need to turn our traditional teaching model upside down to generate productive student discourse that helps every student become a mathematical thinker.

ATOMIC 's annual Mari Muri and Robert Rosenbaum Awards will be presented at the Annual Meeting. New this year Charlene Tate-Nichols and Albina Cannavaciolo Awards - More Info to come!

CALL FOR EXHIBITORS IS OPEN - come showcase your company's great classroom resources and reach more than 600 passionate math educators. Teachers love NEW materials.

Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) is the highest honor bestowed by the United States government specifically for K-12 mathematics and science (including computer science) teaching.  Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.

Anyone - principals, teachers, parents, students, or members of the general public - may nominate exceptional mathematics or science teachers, who are teaching in grades 7 - 12 for the 2016/2017 school year. Secondary school teachers (grades 7-12) will be eligible to apply during a future cycle. Teachers may also apply directly at paemst.org.

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (#PAEMST) is launching its 2016 Nomination Drive and needs your help! Do you know an outstanding math or science teacher? Submit your nominations this week to be included in the drive. Together, we can work to make 2016 a great year for outstanding teachers! 

#PAEMST launches 2016 Nomination Drive! Submit your nominations this week and make 2016 a great year for outstanding teachers!
