Event description

Description

Join us for an exciting day on Math and Science in Reno!

Our focus this year is to engage students and their teachers in exploring new ways to learn math and science. With that in mind our strands are:

STEM and the NVACS: Synergy in the Classroom – Nevada’s new standards (CCSS and NGSS) contain multiple opportunities for linking STEM into the classroom. Presentations in this strand will focus on the creation of real-world lessons that allow students to utilize science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in context so that students make connections to school, community, work and globalization.

Innovation and Persistence: The Power of Failure – Failure is not all bad! Reflections and review assist in more wisdom and increases knowledge often more than success. Presentations in this strand focus on all learners (educators and students) learning from experiences within the classroom and its lessons. Reflection – in – Action (Schön, 1987) can be fostered in student and educators through the use of real problems that allow for the making of mistakes, reflecting on those mistakes, and refining answers through persistence and innovation.

Equitable Access to the NVACS (Nevada Standards, Nevada Content) – All students should have equal opportunities to learn. Presentations in this strand focus on inclusion for diverse populations within the mainstream of education, as well as providing systematic help for those falling behind. Proposals should have elements that link school and home so that disadvantaged families can help their students succeed.

Our Keynote Speaker is Tod Colegrove, DeLaMare Library at the University of Nevada, Reno
