Using Geogebra Resources to Foster Active, Student Centered Learning
If you are new to GeoGebra, you do not need extensive GeoGebra experience to modify any existing GeoGebra resource to best suit the learning needs of various groups of students in your classes!  In this session, we will actively experience how GeoGebra can foster active and differentiated discovery learning experiences for any student(s) with specific learning needs and abilities (Algebra 1, Geometry, higher levels).  We will also copy and modify a public GeoGebra resource to create similar versions of this resource with different levels of scaffolding.  In addition, we will also learn how to create our own GeoGebra books (to organize our own resources).  We will also learn how easy it is to assign a GeoGebra task within a GeoGebra Group, Google Classroom, and other LMS platforms.  Be sure to bring your own device!

Yikes, They Still Can't Add, Subtract, Multiply or Divide Integers! (V)
Participants will be engaged in activities that lead then through the use of concrete materials, integer tiles, then to drawing pictures from their experience with the integer tiles and then move to the use of symbols to represent the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of integers. During the session participants will work in teams of four to solve and discuss tasks that promote conceptual understanding of computation with integers. The teams then will be asked to work through tasks that can be used in their classrooms. The key focus of this presentation is to present and alternative to using the number line and colored chips to develop conceptual understanding of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing integers.

Exploring a Standard Algorithmic Problem from a Model and Data Science Perspective.
This session will explore how a standard algorithmic problem can be approached from a conceptual modeling and data science perspective and lead to natural lines of inquiry for student exploration. While only a specific task will be explored, the session learnings can be generalized and applied to a variety of classes of problems, contexts, and concepts.

KEYNOTE: Teaching & Assessing Without Telling: Fostering Student-Centered Learning & Student-Driven Authentic Assessment in the Math Classroom (Secondary Focus)
Discovery learning and authentic formative assessment, when implemented effectively, can naturally help our students become better critical thinkers and more autonomous learners of mathematics.  In this keynote, we will explore & discuss strategies through which teachers can foster dynamic student-centered learning and formative assessment not just once-in-a-while, but on a continual, daily, ongoing basis. Through this, we will also explore ways through which we can effectively differentiate each student’s active engagement (within both processes of discovery and formative assessment) throughout the curriculum. Through this, we will experience how we can foster such sample learning environments within Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus curricula.

Using Graphing Calculator & Geometry Apps to Discover and Assess
We will explore GeoGebra Graphing Calculator (GC) & Geometry apps to actively explore concepts students learn within MS and HS curricula.  In doing so, we will learn how to use tools to create simple constructions that naturally lead to student-centered discoveries of these concepts.  We will also explore several ways students can effectively use these apps to formatively assess results of their own work.  We will also explore how GeoGebra GC can safely & regularly be used on summative assessments & on high-stakes tests (as one NY district actually did on all three of last year's NY state REGENTS EXAMS).

GeoGebra 3D Modeling with Augmented Reality
Description: In this workshop, we will explore many of the tools in GeoGebra 3D Graphing Calculator app and will use these tools to create various constructions.  Through this exploratory process, participants will discover how they, in turn, can have their students build within this powerful app so as to naturally lead to many “aha!” moments throughout various curricula (middle-school geometry through multivariable calculus).  In addition, we will explore means through which we can have our middle, secondary, and undergraduate students regularly work within a 3D-context to mathematically build models of every-day, real-world objects.  We will then use Augmented Reality (AR) to take a few of these constructions and then (virtually) project them in our environment. Through this, participants will be able to virtually explore these constructions (from the inside and out) and test their accuracy.  
Technology Needed:        
Computer (Mac, PC) or Chromebook (required)
Smartphone (iPhone or Android) or Tablet (iPad or  other tablet) (optional, but needed for the AR component)
