2021 SCCTM Fall Conference

Special Agents of Δ Academy

 November 11 - 12, 2021

Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center

in Columbia, South Carolina


Proposal Deadline is August 30, 2021

The idea of “change” within the context of the 2021 SCCTM Annual Conference and Business Meeting in Columbia, SC, addresses multiple ideas because, if nothing else, COVID-19 has forced us all to make changes. In addition to the idea that the entirety of the field of education has had to make significant change, we’d like to use components of the key recommendations from NCTM’s Catalyzing Change: Initiating Critical Conversations as a guide for the conference theme. In the proposal form, you will enter a title (no more than 90 characters) and a session description (no more than 350 characters) which will be available to participants for determining which sessions they’d like to attend. Your executive board would like each proposal to include a brief statement (no more than 350 characters) telling us how your presentation considers one of the questions below. We thank you for your willingness to share your experiences and expertise!

  1. Purpose

    1. What do you incorporate in your lessons to help learners define a purpose and/or personal connection for doing the math we’re doing (or using the resources we’re using)?

    3. What technologies are we finding particularly purposeful in the classroom?
