Mile High (and much more than an inch deep)

At the NCSM conference in Denver last month, we had our fourth annual Math Ignite event, featuring fast-paced, engaging, 5-minute presentations by a variety of teachers and education leaders. I’ve finally finished editing the videos of those talks, which you can view at our YouTube page. There were many excellent talks, but one stood out for me.

Terry_StudentsEleanor Terry, a teacher in Brooklyn, New York, who is part of the Math for America program, gave an inspiring presentation on how her students conducted exit polls and used software including Fathom to analyze the data. View for yourself how this real-world project has led her students to consider themselves statisticians.

The other presentations were wonderful as well, focusing on a wide variety of themes in math education. Here are the speakers and titles of their talks (which link to the videos).
