Just like I did for April’s PBL and STEM conferences in North Carolina, I’m posting all the slide decks (as they currently exist) for my sessions at the New Tech Annual Conference next week right here. Whether you’re a New Tech teacher or not I hope you find them helpful and/or informative.
I also want to give credit where credit is due, which is pretty much everywhere. I grabbed resources, pictures, videos, and/or ideas from the following places, so you can follow-up or go thank them yourselves.
- Mr. Honner’s Equilateral-er Triangle Blog Post
- Mr. Piccini’s Embrace the Drawing Board
- Malcolm Swan: Improving Learning in Mathematics
- Malcolm Swan (2006) Keynote
- Dan Meyer’s Blog
- Conrad Wolfram TED Talk

Session Slides: FALs 2.0: Spanning Math Content and Concepts. A review of the new materials published by the Mathematics Assessment Project and how it fits into a Problem Based Math class.
Session Slides: Promoting Mathematical Conflict: Eight Tasks That Produce Mathematical Discourse. Basically, an updated version of this right here, with a couple templates for in-class manipulatives:
Session Slides: PrBL Breakout Session. For the New Teacher track. Sort of like the Problem Based Learning session above, this is specifically for new New Tech Network teachers.
