The Annual MATHWEST Spring Conference
Cross-Curriculum Connections

Owl - We hope you have a Hoot! Helping Others by Outstanding Teaching


Make professional connections, while learning from experienced educators. Receive loads of great classroom activities and ideas, and return to your classroom with a renewed enthusiasm for teaching. Designed specifically for mathematics teachers, the conference is to be held in Springfield, Massachusetts on Thursday, April 5, 2007 at the Sheraton Springfield at Monarch Place.

Representing hundreds of teachers in various grade levels throughout Western Massachusetts, MATHWEST is the local partner affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

“Cross-Curriculum Connections” establishes the important links between mathematics and the other disciplines and stands as our theme for the conference. By challenging educators to find real-world applications for traditional mathematic concepts, it will make the subject more enjoyable while enhancing teaching methods.
