CPA x 2: Grounding Instruction in Rigor and Representations
Rigor is defined as having a balance of conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application. (CPA #1) As teachers create a rigorous setting, it is vital to allow students a chance to use and connect mathematical representations. This is done by offering concrete, pictorial, and abstract models at the appropriate times. (CPA #2) This session will help staff understand how to put CPA x 2 into action.

Meaningful Writing In A K-5 Mathematics Classroom...Sounds Awesome, But How Do We Do It?
As we know, meaningful student talk in a math classroom is an enjoyable and productive instructional practice that allows teachers to see into the mathematical thinking of their students. But how do we take this to the next level? Utilizing the book, Why Write In Math Class? This session will take a deeper dive into a variety of ways to integrate writing into your math class that will help students construct, represent, refine, connect, and reflect on mathematical ideas. We will focus on five types of writing that will build on what we know about teaching writing within a literacy classroom and developing a classroom community that supports math talk. Participants will leave with practical suggestions on how to support writing in math as well as specific examples of writing prompts that require high-cognitive demand.

Real World is More Than Dressed Up Math
The Iowa Core references "real world" 52 times but what does this really mean? Does providing a real context (aka dressed up math) make it real world? During this session participants will explore how to engage students in "real world" problem solving.

Purposefully Ambiguous Session Title
We often talk about math as being absolute in that there is typically a “right answer” and “correct” method to solve problems. This is a characteristic of the subject that many people reference when explaining why they like math. However, one doesn’t have to look too far to find instances where that is NOT the case. Recently, there has been a lot of discussion on social media regarding the “correct” answer to the following problem: 6÷2(2+1) = ___ (and similar problems). We argue various answers could be considered correct depending on the intent of the author and/or the context in which the computation originates. In this session, we will explore instances of mathematical ambiguity, what makes these seem ambiguous, how we can help our students make sense of them, and how we can, in some cases, work to make them less ambiguous. Participants are encouraged to bring their own examples of mathematical ambiguity (found teaching or otherwise) to share and discuss with the group.
A good time will be had by some.
