I’m excited to be heading to San Antonio in April for the 2017 NCTM Annual Meeting!

NCTM’s annual meeting brings together thousands of educators from across the country to discuss mathematics, pedagogy, technology, and more. It’s been many years since I attended an NCTM conference, so I’m looking forward to seeing what has changed in how the organization approaches math teaching, math teachers, and professional development.

I’ll be presenting *Making Math in Scratch*, a 60-minute session about my work integrating computer programming into math class using Scratch, the free, web-based, block-based programming environment designed by the MIT Media Lab. The talk is scheduled for Thursday, 4/6/17, at 9:30 am, so if you’re planning on attending the NCTM Annual, please pencil me in! And if you like, I’d be happy to give you a pre-conference homework assignment.

Conferences like this are great opportunities for professional growth, but the logistics are often complicated for classroom teachers. I’m fortunate to have received support from Math for America and the Empire State Excellence in Teaching Award, which makes attending NCTM’s Annual Meeting in San Antonio possible.

Hello Mr. Honner,

I would absolutely love to come to this presentation! I’m going to run it through my administration to see if they are willing to help make it happen. I have also been working to embed computer science in math with my geometry courses this year, and it has been a tremendous success. Here is a link to some resources I’ll be presenting on in Duluth, MN in April.

Thank you for sharing your ideas through the course of the year,

Mike
