Registration is $20 with a copy of the book and $5 if you already have a copy of the text. Additionally, it is free for all preservice teachers. Space is limited so sign up soon!

Calling all mentors of teachers of mathematics! WI-AMTE is creating a mentor support group. The group will host monthly meetings filled with discussion of best practices, challenges, and solutions. To join visit:https://goo.gl/forms/BsO8FUDu6WXVYvfG3. WI-AMTE membership is not required.
The Wisconsin Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators and the Wisconsin Mathematics Council are pleased to hold our 3rd Preservice and Early-Career Poster Session at the WMC Annual Meeting in Green Lake, WI May 1-3, 2019. The Poster session is an opportunity for new and future teachers to present their work and network with education representatives from across the state.
Examples of possible topics to present include: 1) an action research project 2) an analysis of your teaching 3) an illustration of a teaching strategy including examples of student solutions and 4) A mathematical task that you have used to address an interesting part of the curriculum and examples of student work on the task. Posters should be on a tri-fold board or a poster attached to a trifold.
If you are teaching preservice teachers in the fall or spring semester, we hope you will encourage your students to participate. We are especially interested in adding students who have projects with elementary students. WI-AMTE will pay for one day of registration for all participants who present a poster. The submission form for poster ideas will be available in early January and confirmation of poster acceptance will occur in early April.
If you have any questions, please contact Matt Chedister (firstname.lastname@example.org).
