71st Annual OCTM Conference

For the safety of our OCTM members, the 2021 Annual Conference will be VIRTUAL.

Sessions will be held Monday - Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings from October 4-23, 2021.

Join us to explore:

  • How can educators create and nurture an inclusive environment in mathematics classrooms so that ALL students feel they belong?
  • How can educators help empower students with the mindset that they can successfully learn, do, and use mathematics?
  • What strategies and practices can you share with teachers to help them build a mathematical community in their own classroom?

CONFERENCE UPDATES

Conference Registration is scheduled to open by the end of July!

Registration Costs:

  • OCTM Member $39
  • Non-Member $49
  • Pre-service Teacher or Full-time Student - OCTM Member $0

Conference Strands:

  • Building a mathematical community through the beauty of math. Make the math curriculum come alive. Provide participants with math experiences that will enhance teacher content knowledge.  How can teachers and students play with math in the classroom?
  • Building a mathematical community through teaching practices. Classroom practices matter.  Provide participants with current best practices that will enhance their lesson presentation (for example: math routines, math talks, notice/wonder).
  • Building a mathematical community through the development of teacher leaders.  Teaching is a profession.   Provide participants with ideas, strategies and research that support their career-long learning process. Help them develop as advocates for math education and leaders in the teaching community (for example: Lesson Study, new teacher involvement, new ideas for professional development).
  • Building a mathematical community through the embracement of diversity by creating safe and equitable classrooms. Provide all students — regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, sexuality, disability status, national origin, or English language ability — access to the learning of meaningful mathematics.
