2018 Annual Conference

Moving Mountains with Mathematics

March 9 - 10, 2018 at Radford University


Call For Proposals

We are now accepting proposals to speak at the 2018 conference. Once submitted, your proposal will be reviewed by our program committee. You will be notified by January 26 if your proposal has been approved.

If your proposal is approved, the lead speaker must register for the conference at a reduced rate of $60. All other secondary speakers must register for the conference at the conference rate of $100. All lead and secondary speakers will receive one-year of complimentary membership to VCTM.

All presenter rooms have a teacher station with a  computer, monitor, projector, document camera, audio, and internet access. In addition, there are 3 computer labs available, so sessions that engage participants in computer-based activities are encouraged.

We invite  proposals for 75-minute sessions at all levels, from Pre-Kindergarten to Post-Secondary. We are looking for proposals that uniquely explore the conference theme and/or align to one of our conference strands:

Teaching with the New Standards

Virginia has revised the Mathematics Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools. Teachers need to align their curriculum and instruction to the 2016 Standards. We are looking for presentations that highlight the new standards and share innovative ways to teach the new standards. 

Access and Equity

Access and equity require being responsive to students' backgrounds, experiences, and knowledge when designing, implementing, and assessing the effectiveness of mathematics instruction. This strand is open to sessions that help teachers address diverse learners and varying learning strategies.

Enhancing Teaching and Learning

What practices will provide teachers the tools they need to embed the mathematical process standards in their instruction? This strand focuses on the best instructional practices in the area of mathematics education. This strand is open to practices that support the mathematical learning of teachers and their students as well as provide teachers the opportunity to experience learning from the student's point of view.

Enhancing Instruction with Technology

How can we use technology effectively? Technology can be a great help in the classroom, but it can also be superficial. We are looking for sessions that harness the power of technology to enhance student understanding of mathematics. This strand is open to sessions that highlight any type of technology from apps to websites to software to social media to Open Educational Resources.

Proposals are now being accepted. Go here to submit a proposal. Proposals must be received by December 8.

This year, VCTM will be publishing proceedings following the conference. Selected speakers will be invited to submit for proceedings at the end of January. 

For any questions, please contact Jean Mistele at  jmistele@radford.edu.
