    Save Big

    You rely on NCTM as your guide year-round on pressing classroom needs with publications and tools for success. Join the best mathematical minds and the most dedicated educators and participate in the premier math education event of the year.


    Hear from fellow past attendees why they love the NCTM Annual Meeting:

    "Being here has really allowed us to collaborate with other math teachers and get a lot of ideas, new ideas we can implement back in our district."

    —Kendra Doyle, Secondary Math Assistant Director, North East IndependentSchool District

    "It's really great to hear from all the math rock stars, what they're putting into practice, and what the big ideas are that they have." 

    —Kristie Flannery, Math Specialist, Northwest Local School District



    "I think for new teachers, the NCTM Conference is a must."

    Discover more reasons to register for the 2018 Annual Meeting. Watch the video.


    Assessment, one of the 2018 Annual Meeting topics, focuses on purposeful planning and instruction. Outlined in the NCTM publication Mathematics Formative Assessment Volume 2, are 50 all-new formative assessment classroom techniques (FACTS) that are embedded throughout a cycle of instruction. This publication does not present a one-size fits all approach, but helps you build a bridge between your students' initial ideas and correct mathematical thinking. 



    Formative assessment "describes all those processes by which teachers and learners use information about student achievement to make adjustments to the students' learning. It's using information to adapt your teaching and adapt the work of the students to put the learning back on track, to make sure the learning is proceeding in the right direction." 

    —Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at University College London

    Make your plans to attend again early, and be excited to again share experiences and gain insights with thousands of peers.
