Are you looking for incredible, math professional development this summer? Do you want to learn firsthand from the experts who are known worldwide for their innovative and effective teaching methods and materials? Are you ready to teach math a better, more effective way?
On August 6-7, 2018, Yeap Ban Har, Greg Tang and Jennifer Bay-Williams will join forces for two math-packed days in Baltimore, Maryland. We have separate learning tracks planned for
Why join us in Baltimore? First, our speakers are among the most sought-after presenters in the world and also authors for major textbook programs in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Together, they will give you a deeper, more connected understanding of key skills, strategies and standards while modeling the most effective teaching methods and techniques.
Second, many of the methods and materials shared by presenters at other conferences have been pioneered by our speakers. Your time and resources are too valuable for you to be receiving secondhand information. Our speakers are excited and ready to work directly with you, and each is well-known for being extremely friendly and personable.
Third, we do not believe bigger is better when it comes to learning. If a smaller conference with a more personal and intimate atmosphere suits you better than a large and impersonal one, consider joining us. We will do our best to make this 2 of the best days of learning you have ever experienced.
Finally, we will present proven, research-based teaching methods from the United States and Singapore, including:

To make sure everyone is caffeinated and on time for their workshops, we’ll provide coffee and danish from 7:30-8:15 each morning and a deli box lunch each day from 11:15-12:00. It’s all part of your registration fee, and we’re still less expensive than many conferences!
Why don’t other conferences supply breakfast and lunch like us? Because it’s expensive. But we believe it’s money well-spent as it allows us to compress our schedule and offer additional workshops each day. In addition, one of the important goals of our conference is to encourage camaraderie and collegiality and eating together is a great way to meet new people and get to know our friendly presenters.
We do not provide dinner, so grab a few of your newfound friends and head to one of Baltimore's culinary options.
