## A big NCTM thanks and next year’s talk

Thanks to everyone who came to my talk at NCTM, especially on a Friday afternoon during happy hour: You are some hardcore rule-breakers! (See question#4 here)  It was a joy to make so many new friends.  I hope you liked the talk and got something out of it. In fact, look for my next post soon that will do a deeper analysis of the terms ratio, ordered pair, and proportional relationship.

## Next Year’s Talk:

My 6-year-old daughter’s pleasurable learning antics has inspired me to consider a talk where we “do math” together on stage at next year’s NCTM meeting, and show off some of the techniques used in Eureka Math.  You can see some of her pleasurable learning in the videos below (she is my co-teacher in this series).  Let me know if you would like to see Autumn in the comment section at the end of this post, or feel free to suggest a topic for me to speak about.  The deadline is coming up quick, so let me know soon!

Please PLEASE do a post on these ratio topics… I would love to include your ratio unlocking as required reading for the middle school teachers I work with! I’d love more vids of Autumn-

I would love for you to go deep on another major topic of CCSS… NS and integers? Fractions and the associated language- and building that from the 2nd grade Geo standards?

And, for the record, happy hour in Boston goes way beyond 4:30…we are a hardy sort.

I love Autumn, but I also really, really loved your talk on ratios, ratio language, rates, etc, and so I wouldn’t want her adorableness to distract me from learning all that you have to explain (about whatever confusing topic you’d like to explain!) next time.

• No worries. Autumn and I will have an important message that we will tell the audience together!

Thank you for the comment.
