Ensuring All Students Meet High Expectations in Mathematics: Tracking and Pathway Structures
What would it take for all students to meet high expectations in mathematics? Students need to know that teachers believe in them – believe that they are capable and that they belong where deep mathematical thinking is happening. What messages are sent to students about their ability to think about and do math when some receive engaging curricula and others mere rote instruction? Structures like tracking and pathways broadcast our true expectations, so we need to make sure they are sending the message that all students are mathematically brilliant.

Breakout Session | Developing Teachers' STEM Identity in the Math Classroom
For more than 30 years, TI has been an active member in math, science, and STEM classrooms and today is no different. As demand for STEM talent skyrockets, learn how TI can support and encourage math teachers to integrate STEM related activities and real-world connections into their daily math instruction. Learn how to equip your district with technology-rich resources that will ignite students and motivate them to pursue high-need, high-wage career pathways. We look forward to a discussion of roadblocks and challenges that teachers may have in developing their STEM identities and how we can assist in overcoming them.
