More than 500 mathematics educators from the primary through college levels will gather for LIMAÇON, the 32nd Annual Long Island Mathematics Conference. This year’s conference theme is “Advocating for High Quality Math Instruction through Equity, Empowerment, and Effectiveness.”
The keynote speaker is Dr. Matt Larson, current president of NCTM. Previously he was the K-12 curriculum specialist for mathematics in the Lincoln Nebraska Public Schools. In addition, he has authored or co-authored several books including a series on professional learning communities and Common Core Mathematics. His book, entitled “Balancing the Equation: A Guide to School Mathematics for Educators and Parents,” is directed toward parents and educators who seek to improve their understanding of mathematics and help students succeed.
Dr. Larson’s keynote address is followed by a daylong series of workshops focused on mathematics education, pedagogy, and problem solving. Participants can expect sessions to provide ideas, techniques, and skills that will improve teaching and content effectiveness, and energize their classroom. Please bring your own calculators. The presenter will not supply them.
