300: Teaching Mathematics: Reflections and Insights on >1000 Classroom Observations
I have been blessed with an ever growing data base of more than 1000 K–12 mathematics classroom observations since 2010. This session is an opportunity to capture and share some of what I've observed and learned. We will use specific examples to look at such issues as on-going cumulative review, homework, worksheets, saying vs. showing, formative assessment, questioning, and tasks that either numb or energize our neurons—all of which can be transported to every classroom in which mathematics is taught.

487: Upgrade Your Card Sorts
Card sorts help students compare, contrast, and group mathematical structures. In this session we'll learn how to use a free digital card sort to promote discussion and give feedback in ways that are impossible with paper card sorts.

452: Classroom Dessert: Real Assessment Isn’t What You Think
A fine meal is topped off by a carefully-crafted dessert; in the classroom, it’s called “assessment,” and it often lacks flavor. The authors of The Classroom Chef re-think how we assess our students, empowering them by tapping into their voice.
