TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
I need the registration fee for the 2020 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Meeting and Exposition.
We are a Title I school in Queens where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Our students come from many countries around the world. Many of our students don't have the opportunity to experience many extra-curricular activities. Most of our students are excited to be in school and look for opportunities to come in before and after school. I want to be able to provide the students with different activities both in and out of the classroom that are both engaging and fun!
Collaborative, rigorous, technological, and hands-on projects have been proven to be the most effective way to teach mathematics to students in order to succeed in middle school and build upon their problem-solving skills.
High-level tasks give the students more opportunities to speak with one another in and outside of the classroom. The work they get most excited about are assignments that challenge their thinking and pique their interest.
As a mathematics teacher whose work stretches beyond the four walls of my classroom, I know that participating in effective professional learning is a great way to engage in a mathematical community that inspires, supports, and encourages ongoing growth and learning. One of these opportunities is the 2020 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Chicago, Illinois.
By attending this conference, I hope to acquire a new focus on mathematics, pedagogy, and technology.
I would like to attend sessions that equip me to work with technology in mind. For example, I would attend a session on how to teach algebra through computer science concepts and ideas. I would like my students to be better prepared for the future and for the types of jobs that will be available in the next couple of years.
I would like to show my students that having a growth mind means ever learning and making mistakes. There is always room for improvement and to learn new things. I would call it a success if my students see that first hand from their teacher.
