Greetings! I want to share a very important event for future teachers of mathematics in Indiana. The Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM) will be bringing featured speakers from out of state as well as those from our own practices in Indiana,to a fall conference at the Sheraton Hotel at Keystone-at-the-Crossing. Indianapolis, IN. The conference will begin on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and continue through Monday.
As you know, a curricular focus of core content is directed toward STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Our theme for this fall conference isPutting the “M" in StEM, Enhancing RIGOR in the K – 12 Mathematics Classroom.
I invite you to share this information with your elementary and secondary teacher candidates as we strive to strengthen and support the teaching of mathematics for our K-12 students. I have attached a flyer to assist you in disseminating this information. Faculty and students may register for the conference at our website: www.indianamath.org.
