Understanding Slope: Leading Students into Deeper Comprehension
Victoria McKay
Do your students struggle to understand how to calculate slope in an efficient way? In this poster presentation, I will describe a Number talk about slope that I designed and conducted with my 9th grade Algebra 1 students. Come learn about the many different ways my students calculated slope.

Fair Games:  A Lesson in Probability and Fairness
Alaina Atwood
In this lesson students uncover the connection between equal parts of a whole and fairness after playing a race game with an unfair spinner. Students determine who is favored to win in the game and are then asked to change the game to make it fair for all.

Strategies for Subtracting Fractions: Number Talks for Conceptualizing Elementary Mathematics
Meghana Bellary
If your students are frustrated with subtracting fractions, visiting this poster could be a great way to better understand how to build students conceptual understanding of fraction subtraction. This poster describes different strategies anticipated and how to help your students.

Multiple Representations for Combinations: Field Day Outfits
Natalie Marie Cruz
Do your students struggle with thinking about a general rule or pattern for determining the total number of objects?  In this poster presentation I will describe a project based on field day outfit combinations that I designed and conducted with my 3rd grade students.

Comparing Heights to Explore Linear Measurement and Data Analysis
Deirdre M. Mari
Do you want to incorporate math explorations in lower elementary classes while building analytical skills? In this poster presentation I will describe a math investigation my 2nd grade students completed, in which they collected, organized, and analyzed data.

Subitizing: Number Talks to Develop Young Childrens' Number Sense
Sapna Shah
How are some children able to quickly look at a group of dots and determine how many there are? This skill is called subitizing. On this poster I describe how I used subitizing in a Number Talk with 3 to 5 year old students to develop pre-addition skills.

Mathematical Modeling: Table Tiles
Tiffany Boren
Do your students understand how to model patterns algebraically? In this poster presentation, I will describe a high-level algebra task that requires students to find an algebraic pattern for the number of tiles on a table. Learn how to challenge your students.

Approximating Irrational Numbers: Expanding Mental Math Capabilities Through Number Talks
Andre C. Ross
Do you desire for your students to employ more mental math strategies to make estimates? In my presentation, I will discuss a Number Talk I administered with my 8th grade students that required them to make mental math approximations.

Multiple Methods for Adding Decimal Numbers: Number Talks for Conceptual Understanding 
Melinda Williamson
Do you want your students to have a better understanding of what conceptually happens when you add two decimals? In this presentation I will describe a Number Talk about adding decimals. Learn about how my students used their own reasoning methods and developed skills to understand decimals. 

Leverage Students: Addition Intuition before Introducing the Idea of Regrouping
Cecilia Macias
This poster goes over the details of different ways in which a second grade class thought about two-digit number plus two-digit number addition within a Number Talk. Learn more about the different techniques students utilized to make sense of the problems.

Using Number Talks to Conceptualize Basic Functions & Sequences
Justin Thompson
Are your students relying on calculators to solve basic mathematical problems? In this poster presentation, I will describe a Number Talk about two topics that should, but are often not, computed in students' heads. Learn about many of the methods my students learned.
