On July 20th - 22nd, the Oregon Math Leaders (OML) conference will be back at Linfield College!
Don't let the "Leaders" in the name worry you, ALL math educators are leaders!
Would you like to present a session on this year's theme?
This year's theme:
Connecting the Dots: Ambitious Classrooms, Principled Instruction, Authentic Mathematic
The conference will have three strands of focus:
Why should you attend? OML is a fun, rejuvenating, “homegrown” conference focused on Oregon educators. It is a perfect opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with old friends. There will be sessions addressing Elementary, Middle and High School levels, each led by educators who use the techniques in their classrooms.
Lisa Wileman, Associate Professor of mathematics at Southern Oregon University, will speak for our opening keynote.
Lisa is an expert in building community and making connections in the classroom, with community members, and across mathematics education.
Andy Byerley, assessment specialist from ODE, will present the “State of the State” and update teachers on the latest in curriculum, instruction and the statewide assessment system.
Elementary teachers will again have a special session provided by the Nancy Anderson Fund. This session will focus on The Five Practices in Practice book and includes complimentary base ten and color tiles for attendees.
We like to have fun doing math! There will be organized activities: Thursday night (Golf, hiking or wine tasting), a Friday night social, and Saturday area meetings where you can connect with math educators from your region. This year, we are continuing to stay in dorms, so it’s back to college for some and it’s a whole new experience for those who commuted to school. The dormitories are quads where each person has a private bedroom, two people share a bathroom and all four share a sitting area and a kitchen. However, all meals are provided.
Come join us, July 20th - 22nd at Linfield College in McMinnville. Registration will begin in May. We would love for you (or your entire math team) to join us! Relax, recharge and reconnect, while sharing your love of teaching mathematics!
