The Program is as Good as the Presenters, and the Presenters Are You!

Would you like to present at the 2018 CCTM Annual Conference? If so, you need to submit a proposal! The submission deadline is Sunday, April 15, so don't delay!

Are you thinking, "Hmm...I have an idea, but I'm not really an expert. I won't bother submitting a proposal." Stop! We're not expecting everyone to be an expert! Teachers come to the conference to share ideas, compare experiences, and learn from others. Do any of these sound like you?

  • You have a creative or novel idea about dealing with homework and grading.
  • You developed a series of strong lessons that use ratio tables that other teachers like to borrow.
  • You are the faculty sponsor for your school's math club and you have some activities to share.
  • You wrote a paper for your master's program that included some interesting research findings.
  • After 8 years of teaching you've finally figured out how to help students understand why negative numbers multiplied by negative numbers are positive, and you're so excited about it you want to show a room full of strangers.

If you have an idea like these, please submit a proposal! You only need a session title, a 2-5 sentence description, and to check a few boxes on our proposal form. If selected, you will receive a discounted conference registration rate. Again, proposals must be submitted by Sunday, April 15!

2018 CCTM Annual Conference—In August!

Make your plans for the 2018 CCTM Annual Conference today! The big change for this year's conference is that it will be held August 2-3. We've heard from CCTM members who haven't been able to attend the conference when it was held during the school year, so we're hoping that even more people can join us by having the conference just before the start of the school year. So join us in 2018 without the need to find, plan for, and pay for a sub!

The conference will again be held at the University of Denver and the CCTM conference committee is already hard at work finding speakers and contacting exhibitors. We're happy to announce that this year's keynote speaker will be Andrew Stadel, creator of the website Estimation 180.

If you'd like to speak at the 2018 Annual Conference, speaker proposal submissions are now now being accepted! The process is simple: Give us a title, a 2-5 sentence description, and some information about what your session is about and the audience you'd like to reach. Proposals must be submitted by Sunday, April 15, 2018. Submit a proposal today!
