October 3, 2014
The 33rd Annual Conference on the Improvement of Mathematics Teaching is scheduled for Friday, October 3, 2014 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. Christine Franklin from the University of Georgia. Professor Franklin is passionate about teaching statistics and believes that statistical literacy is essential for all citizens in today’s data-centric world. She has written two statistics textbooks (of which one is a sports-related text for high school). Her research interests center around statistics education, levels Pre-K and up. 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 12th. Late registrations requiring an $85 fee per person will be accepted from September 13th to September 26th. 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 9/26/2014.
Please fill out the registration form and return it with payment as soon as possible. A confirmation notice will be sent immediately upon receipt of paid registration. In addition, participants will receive further conference information in mid-September regarding check-in procedures.
