Dr. Robert Cunningham to Give Talk at NCTM Conference

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.
