A Blog by Carnegie Learning
We had an incredible time with all of you who came out to NCTM this year.
Here are some of our favorite highlights:
Ed Beam - Attendees got to meet our special friend, Ed Beam, who told them all about our #1 EdReports ranking for blended middle school math solution. Ed made quite a splash at NCTM by sharing important information and occasionally sneaking up on attendees. It was such a success that the makers of Beam highlighted us on their blog: Setting the Tone for Innovation: How STEM Leader Carnegie Learning Uses Beams
LONG + LIVE + MATH Pledge - Welcome to all of the brand new LONG + LIVE + MATHers who took the Pledge at our booth! We are so jazzed to welcome you into this growing community. Here are some ideas for how to take action right now to improve math education.
(If you didn't have a chance to take the Pledge, it's not too late! Join the Movement and get your free Welcome Gift in the mail.)
Math Challenges - What happens when you pour water into oddly shaped cups? How much water will it take to fill a hot tub? LONG + LIVE + MATHers showed off both their mathematical and collaboration skills during our 2x daily interactive math challenges.
Want to test your knowledge? See if you can master our final challenge below, and share your answers with us on social media using the hashtag #longlivemath.
Featured Sessions - We had a great time sharing strategies for number talks in the K-2 classroom and teaching fractions, bar models and equations as part of the official NCTM program.
Blended is Best - Congratulations to Brittany B. who won a Vitamix blender!
