Recap from the 2012 NCTM Annual Meeting

We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that visited us at the 2012 NCTM Annual Meeting and Expo! It was wonderful to see and meet each and every one of you.

We received an abundance of praise from our current Big Ideas Math users, and excitement from those that were new the program. It was fantastic to see such enthusiasm surrounding Big Ideas Math from amazing educators and professionals.

In case you missed the conference or our booth, we have some photos to share:

Setting Up For NCTM 2012

Setting up our Big Ideas Learning exhibitor’s booth proved to be a bit more difficult than normal this morning! When we arrived, we found this in our booth:

Big Ideas Math Ransom Note

A teacher at the Milton Hershey School in Hershey, PA LOVES his copy of our new Algebra One book but misplaced it one day and was distraught! When another teacher found it, she knew how much he loves this book so she sent him this picture and included a ransom note on it.

This is truly an amazing testament to the wonderful teachers we have using our books as well as their love for our program. Just keep your eyes on those books!
