A) What to Keep and What to Leave Out of Calculus & Precalculus

Incorporating technology and new topics in precalculus and calculus classes have forced us to think about which traditional topics should be deleted or given less emphasis. This session will provide us an opportunity to share our thoughts and our solutions. Moderator: TBA

B) Acceleration to Calculus: Pluses and Minuses

Abstract to be posted shortly. Moderator: TBA

C) How Do You Prepare Students for the AP Calculus Tests?

Our students take the AP Calculus Tests. How do we prepare them to take these exams? Moderator: TBA

D) What Algebra and Geometry Topics are Needed for Precalculus

Are we providing our algebra and geometry students with what they need to succeed when they subsequently take our precalculus courses? What are the key ideas that may need more emphasis in these classes? Moderator: TBA

E) Dealing with Challenging Students

We have all had students who challenge us in various ways and have had to figure out how to deal with their challenges. All are welcome to participate in this sharing session: Both those who have been successful in dealing with such students, as well as those who are trying to figure out what to do with such students. Moderator: TBA

F) Preparing High School Students for College Math

How can we best prepare high school students for success in college mathematics? An open discussion. Moderator: TBA

G) What is Your School Doing to Prepare for State Tests?

Abstract to be posted shortly. Moderator: TBA

H) How to Structure Algebra and Geometry?

Which order best leads to student mastery of these topics? Is it Algebra I, Geometry, then Algebra II, or a different order? Or is the preferred curriculum one that takes an integrated approach? Moderator: TBA

I) Effective Use of Technology in Math Classes Classes

This sharing session will provide participants with an opportunity to learn from each other about their experiences in using technology in their own classes. Moderator: TBA
