MathEd Out Indy 2014


The idea is simple. Get a group of pioneering Math teachers in a room to share what works in their classroom. Add coffee and breakfast and you have a recipe for great teaching and learning.

I am proud to be co-organizer of MathEd Out Indy 2014 which will be held on the morning of Saturday 8th February 9-12am at Herron High School in downtown Indianapolis. There will be no presentations or talks, just a place to share and hear from years of experience around the table.

Topics of discussion at this event will include:

  • How to relate content to real world scenarios
  • Strategies for challenging high ability students
  • Skills Based Grading (SBG)
  • Preparing students for college

I’m excited and hope you can make it. Reserve your place soon to avoid disappointment.
