The purpose of this moderated panel discussion is to provide K-12 teachers of mathematics, math coaches, math department heads, and school and district administrators in the Bay Area the opportunity (for FREE) to learn about new textbook and supplementary resources for use in the math classroom that are closely aligned with the CCSS-M both in content and in spirit. Many schools and districts will be selecting new curricular materials during the[masked] school year if not sooner, and want detailed information about what is available now, and what will be available shortly.
Each panelist will represent a series of textbooks or resources from a publisher active in the California market. S/he will present information and answer specific questions asked by the moderator. CPM, IMP, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Pearson, Kyndall Hunt, and EngageNY (aka Eureka - published by Wiley) will be represented. McGraw Hill was invited, but has not responded. We have deliberately asked for representatives who are very familiar with math curriculum issues - these will not be mildly informed sales reps.
Please invite your colleagues and administrators and bring your questions!
The event will be held in the Lawrence Hall Auditorium. There will be ample time for questions and 12-12:30 is reserved for individual conversations with the panelists. During this time, you will be able to look at table displays the publishers have brought.
Parking is ample—though it costs $1 per hour in advance. The machines always take credit cards and should take bills, but don't always. You may no longer pay at the front desk. Carpooling is recommended.
