Creating Digital Breakouts with Google

**Speakers**
## Caitlin Sulentic

Grab your device and join in the fun of creating digital breakouts! Digital breakouts are an engaging way to get students practicing concepts while collaborating with classmates. We will explore how Sites, Forms, Sheets, Docs and more in the G Suite can simplify this process.

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)

**Speakers**
## Timothy Brzezinski

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.

Introduction to Building Desmos Activities

Are you ready to create your own Desmos activites? Join me as I introduce the Desmos design principles and options available for creating your own high quality activities to enhance conversations, increase engagement, and provide greater opportunities to meet the needs of all your students. Learn how the Desmos Activity Builder can help you create dynamic activities as well as how to use pre-built activities from Desmos itself and its user community. We’ll show you how to get started building your own activity and answer questions along the way. Bring a tablet or laptop to maximize your participation.

Making Algebra 3-D Real

One major purpose of Algebra is to develop functions that explain, model, and solve real life situations. Participants will be involved in 3-D situations encouraging students to pose questions and then determine answers by manipulating variables, recording data, forming graphs, and developing functions. 3_D situations will include ‘The Walk’, ‘Spring has Sprung’, ‘Fish Pond’, ‘Bungee Barbie’, and ‘Race Car’.

Making Math Discourse Work

Are you frustrated with the lack of quality conversations when you give students a chance to engage with a math task? Are you looking for some tangible ways you can get kids more engaged in mathematical discourse? Then this session is for you. I'll give you a chance to play the role of student and share my successes and failures in supporting mathematical discourse with students. I'll share some specific strategies and tools as well as some key resources that have helped me along my journey to facilitating better conversations in math class.

Making Secondary Math Accessible for All

We are a 8-9 math team that works to make secondary math content, as well as number sense and proportional thinking, accessible to all learners through hands-on materials and movement. We have used these strategies in Algebra 1 courses in the past to overcome significant math deficits and allow students to learn at the same pace as their peers.
