National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Conference
Building Students’ Understanding of Mathematics through Reasoning and Proof
Thursday, October 20, 2011: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
Room 318 (Atlantic City Convention Center)
Co-Speaker: Katelyn Goodman
Lead Speaker: Bob Cunningham
Although high school mathematics, during instruction and assessment, sometimes short-changes reasoning and proof, they can furnish a revealing portrait of students’ understanding. Participants will evaluate samples of students’ logical arguments and proofs from algebra, geometry, and number theory and explore strategies that promote reasoning and proof.
