iMATHination 2014 Conference Call For Proposals - Due October 31, 2013 (Still Accepting)
Please complete all information below. Proposals will be considered based on level of interactivity, appropriateness for grade level and content indicated, relevance and use of current methodology. All sessions should provide our participants with resources that can be directly incorporated into their classroom practice. Priority will be given to proposals for sessions that integrate a combination of math, science and technology and address the conference theme focusing on the pedagogical shifts required to effectively implement the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. For a description of these shifts, please visit http://schools.nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/9375E046-3913-4AF5-9FE3-D21BAE8FEE8D/0/CommonCoreInstructionalShifts_Mathematics.pdf.
The conference will take place on January 24-25, 2014, at the Q Center in St. Charles, IL. There will be two types of presentations - Friday evening "Math Bash" sessions and Saturday workshops. The Friday sessions will be 45 minutes in length and are meant to be fun, interactive activities. Saturday workshops will be 75 minutes in length. Both session types must be hands-on in nature. The Saturday session should include time for participants to begin thinking about how they will utilize materials/ideas presented in their daily practice.
**If you would like to present multiple sessions, you must submit each session separately.**
