Announcing USACAS 11

Posted 04/26/2019 by Curtis Brown

Every other year, mathematics and science educators from around the world descend on Chicago for a teaching conference focused on exploring how Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) can be used in the classroom to further students’ mathematical thinking and understanding. This year, USACAS 11 will be held June 14–16 at Highland Park High School, about 20 minutes from O’Hare International Airport. Attend the Friday night dinner with Thomas Dick, Ph.D., from Oregon State University as the keynote speaker and the 1 1/2-day conference for only $95. Come “find the right tool to solve the problem,” and experience how CAS and other technology tools can be integrated into mathematics, STEM and science classrooms.

Here are some remarks from past USACAS conference participants:

“It was the best small conference that I have ever attended. I look forward to the next conference!” — Dennis St. John, Ph.D., Central Michigan University

“It was a first-class conference on an extremely important topic. As some of the presenters showed today, CAS can also help students develop a deep understanding of early algebraic thinking.” — Peter Balyta, Ph.D., president, Texas Instruments Education Technology

“I first attended USACAS in 2007. That conference had a greater impact on my growth as a teacher than any other that I have ever attended.” — Dennis Wilson, mathematics teacher, Landmark Christian School

Join the MEECAS (Mathematics Educators Exploring Computer Algebra Systems) international conference to explore the future of mathematics, STEM and science education.
