The MATHWEST 2009 Spring Conference
Date: April 7, 2009
Location: Springfield Sheraton
Topic: Multiple Representations
MATHWEST is pleased to announce its tentative program for this spring's mathematics conference. A complete conference mailer will be sent to our mailing list or can be downloaded from this site. The day will include four 90-minute sessions, a luncheon with colleagues, as well as an array of vendors. Our format includes a three tier conference with tracks for elementary, middle, and high school teachers.
This year's theme is Multiple Representations, which helps to establish connections for students. Research shows that students learn mathematical concepts more readily and with deeper understanding when they learn across different forms of representation. When they are able to see the math in different ways - through multiple representations - they begin to broaden their critical thinking skills and make meaningful connections. It just adds up!
Our schedule of speakers is subject to change without notice. Please visit the web site for up-to-date information as it becomes available. If you have questions or for more information, please contact Scott Trahan, our conference chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
