72nd Annual OCTM Conference

October 27-28, 2022

Sharonville Convention Center (Cincinnati)

hosted by Southwest Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics

Why is that SIGMA in the logo?  The symbol Σ (sigma) is generally used to denote a sum of multiple terms.  The use of sigma in the 2022 conference logo was intentionally selected to emphasize that our OCTM organization is #BetterTogether with the sum of our parts.


Conference Strands are aligned with OCTM's core values.


  • Value, welcome, and seek out diversity among our leadership and membership of our organization.  Collaborate with colleges and universities to seek out, recruit and support a diverse group of prospective teachers to enter mathematics education.
  • Work to challenge and abolish structures that have oppressed certain groups of students historically and currently.
  • Encourage underrepresented and marginalized populations of students to pursue careers in mathematics and mathematics teaching.
  • Promote participation in meaningful interest-based mathematics programs and courses.

Effective Teaching Practices

  • Value and continually lift up teachers' voices in our organization and in the state of Ohio.
  • Provide spaces for teachers to share their knowledge and experiences.
  • Advocate for research-based, student-centered teaching that values and builds on students’ strengths, that are culturally relevant, and that use mathematics to expand professional opportunities, understand and critique the world, and experience the joy, wonder, and beauty of mathematics.
  • Advocate for classrooms that value and build on all students’ strengths, that are culturally relevant, and that use mathematics to expand professional opportunities, understand and critique the world, and experience the joy, wonder, and beauty of mathematics.

Opportunities to Learn and Grow

  • Develop current and future mathematics education leadership in and for the state of Ohio.
  • Provide opportunities for teachers to engage with mathematics and mathematics teaching and learning to “experience the wonder, joy and beauty of mathematics” for their professional and personal growth.
  • Advocate for equitable, high-quality professional development that centers teachers as professionals.
  • Promote access to high-quality, rigorous mathematics classrooms for all students.
