ATMOPAV 2012 Presentation

What a great day of math sharing today at the ATMOPAV (Association of Teachers of Mathematics of Philadelphia and Vicinity) conference at Strath Haven High School, near Philly.  First, interesting “function dances” and iPad applications on developing function concepts by Scott Steketee.  Then, insights into the Common Core emphasis on functions, with assessment examples from PARCC, from John Mahoney.

In the afternoon, I enjoyed presenting my session, “Encouraging Perseverance in Problem Solving” to an enthusiastic group.  Hope they all find something of value from the session to take back to their schools!  My speaker slides, and some related videos and handouts, are below.
