UCTM FAll/winter Journal
Our theme for the August 1, 2017 UCTM conference is Maximize Mathematics Learning for All Students.This year, we are teaming up with the Utah State Board of Education SSIP implementation team to discuss how to help all students access and master grade-appropriate mathematics. We are inviting all Utah educators who provide or supervise math instruction to participate in this conference, including general mathematics educators, special educators, administrators, coaches, and related service providers. Our keynote speakers will be the authors of The Classroom Chef, John Stevens, and Matt Vaudrey. You do not want to miss this energetic duo discussing how to teach math to students so that they have opportunity to have choice, control over their learning, how to discuss mathematics in the classroom. Other national experts will also be featured. There is no cost to attend this conference, so we hope to see you all there on August 1 at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center.
