Keynotes

Four Critical Areas to Improve Student Learning while Finding the Joy in Math
Mathematics teachers are burdened with initiatives and responsibilities that can take away from everyone’s love of math. Come learn about using appropriate tools strategically to find creative ways to help your students at all levels increase their engagement in learning mathematics. From making math music videos to reconsidering the way we plan and execute our lessons, we will work together to find the joy in mathematics.
Develop Growth Mindset in Mathematics to Increase Students’ Perseverance, Engagement and Success in Your Math Classroom
The full day seminar is scaled down to an 45-60 minute keynote address. Teachers know the basics of growth mindset, but often do not know how to teach mathematics incorporating many of the growth mindset principles. This highly engaging and interactive talk will inspire teachers while also giving them ideas to immediately incorporate in their classroom.
