Their Tomorrow Starts Today Building a Future Takes a Mathematics Foundation July 15 317, 2009 George R. Brown Convention Center 1001 Avenida de las Americas Houston, TX CAMT 2009 Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching 56th Annual Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching CAMT 2009 Greetings Mathematics Education Colleagues, Welcome to the 56th Annual Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching (CAMT)! CAMT 2009 will be held in Houston, Texas 3the nation 9s fourth largest city, which over 2 million people call home and a hub for international businesses.
In Houston, we have a great tradition of being a place of Lrsts and futuristic endeavors. cHouston d was the Lrst word spoken from the surface of the moon, and as we meet the challenge to bring forward the next generation of Lrsts, we dedicate this convening of the 56th CAMT 2009 to our future 3the best and brightest boys and girls who sit in classrooms across this great state. Their Tomorrow Starts Today 3Building a Future Takes a Mathematics Foundation , our CAMT 2009 theme, captures the essence of what must be accomplished in mathematics education.
We must equip and prepare ourselves to meet the challenge of educating a generation ... more. less.
who live in a world where borders no longer restrain our economies, technologies create new opportunities, and students 9 knowledge and skills base must be broad enough to develop the ability to rethink, retrain, and resolve. To equip and empower mathematics educators to meet the challenge, we have developed the following strands within the conference program in addition to other dynamic presentation topics and conference favorites such as STEPS and MATH-A-RAMA. Training Wheels for New Teachers Series: What you need to know now!<br><br> Research Into Practice: Creating a systemic approach to teaching and learning Equity and Diversity: What it takes to reach all students Leadership Development: Creating a vision for excellence As you attend CAMT 2009 and visit the Space City, as Houston is so affectionately known, take a moment to reMect on a skyline that was Lrst envisioned by young men and women before it came to be, as they sat in classrooms and dreamed big. Visit the area museums where you see further evidence of genius in art, science, and history that all began when the imaginations of students were sparked by their teachers. Gaze upon the stars in the night sky and see the same sky that astronauts dared to My and a moon that was conquered.<br><br> Enjoy all that we have to offer, but most importantly realize all you have to offer to a boy or girl as you help to build a future. Remember, Their Tomorrow Starts Today 3Building a Future Takes a Mathematics Foundation! See you at CAMT 2009.<br><br> Sincerely, 56th Annual Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching. The 2009 Program Committee developed the logo with Geoffrey Potter, who designed the CAMT 2009 registration booklet and program covers. The CAMT website, www.camtonline.org was developed and is maintained by Geoffrey Potter.<br><br> Bea Moore Luchin CAMT 2009 Program Chair NUMBERS Mathematics Professional Development Their Tomorrow Starts Today page \xb Teachers, why should you attend CAMT?
