31st Annual Conference on the Improvement of Mathematics Teaching
October 5, 2012
The 31st Annual Conference on the Improvement of Mathematics Teaching is scheduled for Friday, October 5, 2012 on the main campus of Purdue University Calumet. Area K-12 teachers and administrators are encouraged to take part in the exciting reform-minded sessions planned for this year’s event. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. David Webb from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Dr. Webb is the Executive Director of the Freudenthal Institute USA. He currently teaches methods courses for prospective middle and high school mathematics teachers. His recent research projects have focused on studies of teacher change in classroom assessment, the impact of reform curricula on student learning, and teacher design and use of formative assessment tools. The conference will also feature breakout sessions targeting various grade levels.
Each participating individual or school should submit this registration form. Schools should include the names of participating teachers. Due to the interactive nature of the conference, participation is limited. Registration forms, along with payment (or purchase orders), of $75 per person should be submitted by Friday, September 14th. Late registrations requiring an $85 fee per person will be accepted from September 15th to September 28th. A late fee of $20, or $95 per person, will be added to registrations received the week of the conference, as space permits.
DISCOUNT: If 4 or more teachers from the same school submit their applications together, each teacher’s registration will be discounted $5 (from either the regular $75 fee or the $85 late charge fee). This discount applies only to applications submitted together in one envelope and is not applicable to applications received after 9/28/12.

In addition, participants will receive further conference information in mid-September regarding check-in procedures.
