Title: Teach Every Student to Think Like a Mathematician
Description: Teaching all students to think and reason is perhaps the greatest challenge we face as math educators. The eight standards for mathematical practices found in the Common Core Standards for Mathematics are our best articulation to date of what it means to think (and work!) like a mathematician. This session will offer a framework for making sense of the mathematical practices, images of what they look in action, and strategies for developing them in all students.
Breakout Sessions We are planning for up to 60 breakout sessions throughout the day.
These sessions will be lead by national leaders and presenters as well as our colleagueswho are practicing teachers and leaders on
a wide range of topics.
Please go to www.aatm.org closer to the conference to view sessions and plan out your day!!
2 Exciting FRIDAY Pre-Conference Events!!!

Phoenix Airport Hilton 2425 S. 47th St.
**NOTE: These events are not included with the "regular" conference admission. They are separate tickets...please read the ticket information carefully.**
Title: Routines for Reasoning: Fostering Math Thinking and Teaching Practices
Description: If we are to prepare our students for the world ahead of them we must teach them to think and reason mathematically. This means ensuring that all students develop powerful mathematical practices, and it will require that all teachers develop powerful math teaching practices. Practices are habits and habits are formed through routine, so instructional routines become powerful vehicles for developing both math thinking and math teaching practices.
In this session, you will learn about Routines for Reasoning, a set of instructional routines intentionally designed to develop habits of thinking articulated in the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices in ALL students. Specifically, you will learn:
Where do I park?
The parking structure directly south of the ASU Memorial Union is the best place to park. It is free on Saturdays.
