RME’s 2017 Research-to-Practice Conference, Conceptual Understanding in the Mathematics Classroom: Why it Matters concluded in February with 338 attendees, RME’s largest conference to date. Math teachers and leaders from all over North Texas were in attendance, and the RME team learned through a post-conference survey that:
- 97 percent of respondents agreed the R2P conference was a valuable professional development experience.
- 96 percent agreed that they are likely to incorporate what they learned from the conference into their teaching or coaching practice.
- 96 percent agreed that the speakers delivered high-quality information.
The teachers in the survey also reported that they directly impact over 10,000 student annually, and that 85% plan to attend next year’s conference.
The RME conference would not be possible without the continued support of our generous funders, Istation, The Meadows Foundation, the Hoglund Foundation, and Reasoning Mind.
