Do you belong to NCTM? The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is your professional organization. Membership is not expensive and provides you with all of the latest news in math education, exciting projects and lesson plans, as well as magazines and periodicals with articles that are rich and relevant. Additionally, NCTM has state and local affiliates that provide you with pertinent information about what is going on at a local level.
Big Ideas Learning will have a booth at the National NCTM conference in Indianapolis, April 13-16. Come by and see us! You can visit us at the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt booth as well. If you print this article and bring it to the booth, we will register your school for a free professional development workshop on the Common Core Standards of Mathematical Practices. We will give you a little something, too!
