Math Speaker Series

Michael Fenton: Engaging Students in Meaningful Mathematics 

How can we develop students' problem solving skills? Stop asking all the questions! Learn how to increase engagement and develop CCSSM practices by having students pose their own problems to visually engaging prompts. Participants will also explore how to transform closed, uninspiring problems into engaging, rich tasks. In this introduction to the “open middle” genre we’ll wrestle with sample problems, discuss effective classroom use, and tackle a series of “Open Middle Makeover” challenges. The day will end with an in-depth look at Desmos, the free online graphing calculator. Participants will learn how to engage students in meaningful mathematics using everything from pre-made explorations, to start-from-scratch graphing tasks, to full-blown networked activities at

Dr. Paul Riccomini: Maximize ALL Students’ Mathematical Learning through the use of Powerful Instructional Strategies and Techniques 

Effective mathematics teachers provide a continuum of instructional supports to help students learn essential mathematical concepts and master new important skills. Additionally, math teachers devote significant efforts and instructional time to make sure students do not forget what they have previously learned; extremely important in the study of mathematics. These intensive and interactive sessions will provide elementary level mathematics teachers specific strategies for organizing both instruction and students’ studying of material to facilitate learning, remembering, and applying critical mathematical concepts and skills in new situations. Dr. Riccomini draws upon the most currently available research-based evidence for teaching mathematics to struggling students, chronic low achievers, and students with disabilities.
