What is the MCTM Spring Conference?
The MCTM Spring Conference is a two-day event with national keynote speakers and workshop sessions led by math leaders at all academic levels (Pre K-12, ABE, and College), focused on a variety of math topics, teaching methods, resources, and more. This is a great opportunity to learn from and with your math colleagues!
This year you’ll hear from several dynamic keynote speakers, including:
- Friday, April 21 – Peter Liljedahl: Building Thinking Classrooms
- Saturday, April 22 – Sizi Goyah, May Vang and Mike Weimerskirch: Math for All Minnesotans
This conference has quickly been added to the list of favorites by many ABE practitioners who have attended. It’s a conference completely dedicated to math education. Teachers from Pre K-12, college, and adult education come together to talk about math teaching and learning. If you teach math/numeracy in your setting, you won’t want to miss out!
