In light of the announcement by Governor Tony Evers mandating the closure of all public and private Wisconsin schools and the related ban on all events with over 50 people, the Wisconsin Mathematics Council Annual Conference, scheduled for May 6-8, will be cancelled.
We appreciate the understanding of those who were looking forward to attending the WMC Annual Conference. WMC would also like to thank the many people who already put in time and effort to make the conference a success, from keynotes and presenters to exhibitors and conference planners as well as the Green Lake Conference Center.
All hotel reservations booked through the Green Lake Housing Form will be cancelled on your behalf and (if applicable) you will receive a refund of your deposit within 3 weeks. Good news is that there is no further action on your part, you will not need to request a cancellation of your GLCC hotel reservation. If you made hotel reservations directly with area hotels or another agency, you will have to cancel these reservations separately.
Thank you for your understanding. Look for further communication from WMC about future professional development opportunities.
Pre-Conference Line Up May 6, 2020
Dr. Christy Pettis, UW Riverfalls
Playing with Tens: Games and Activities to Build Number Sense (PK-2): Let's have fun building number sense! Come learn games and activities that support the development of number sense in early elementary, particularly around making tens. We will practice different ways of orchestrating classroom discussions in order to highlight the important mathematical thinking that is generated as students play with ideas. Ways to differentiate the games and activities to meet different learning needs will also be addressed.
Pam Harris, Texas State University
Math is Figureoutable! (General Interest): What does it mean for math to be figureoutable instead of rote-memorize-able? How do we build powerful mathematics in our students, from early grades through high school and beyond? In this lively session, Pam will lay out a progression of building increasingly sophisticated mathematical reasoning, one that informs your teaching at every level.
