  69. Oooh, we're going to consider "how they're alike", "how they're different" about two math lessons. @LindaGojak #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  70. @LindaGojak killing us with an intentionally dreadful reading of a volume problem. #naptime #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  71. Ack! I'm going to be here longer than intended checking out all of the #PresIgnite tweets! Thanks #NCTMregionals
  72. It's like reading who dun it b4 reading the mystery ! (Textbooks lesson) @LindaGojak #NCTMregionals #presIgnite
  73. .@LindaGojak showing us how ridiculous the writing in most of our text books is. "...boxes...boxes...boxes..." #NCTMregionals #presignite
  74. And we wonder why kids are sleeping in math class? Two looks at volume @LindaGojak #presignite #NCTMregionals
  75. @LindaGojak: giving the formula right after students encounter volume is like reading the end of a whodunnit after Ch. 1 #NCTMregionals
  76. The second volume problem much more dense and thoughtful. Does a lot more work. No formula in sight! @LindaGojak #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  77. Which of these lessons models the effective teaching practices? Duh. @LindaGojak #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  78. @LindaGojak compares 2 curricular approaches to volume in 5 minutes. Another #PresIgnite I'd love to see the 1-hr version of! #NCTMregionals

  82. When we do things like the butterfly method, we send a MESSAGE to Ss that math is about tricks. @dbriars #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  83. @dbriars plugs #NixTheTricks in her #PresIgnite at #NCTMregionals: let's not send Ss the message that they need tricks to do math @crstn85
  84. Lands End says this girls' backpack is "tough as long division". Must be for "Math is Hard" Barbie! @dbriars #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  85. Micro messages and implicit messages are crucial to attend to thru peer observ! @dbriars #NCTMregionals #presIgnite https://t.co/NtpyUGCMr9

    Suggestions for peer observations to uncover micromessages and unintentional bias. via @dbriars #NCTMregionals #PresIgnite pic.twitter.com/nNeOsk8Iok
  87. What message do we not want to send to Ss? Let's get rid of tricks, rules that "expire", and stereotypes in math. @dbriars #NCTMregionals
  88. Having Ss read textbook definitions b4 tackling a problem is like telling them whodunnit b4 they read the mystery @LindaGojak #NCTMregionals
  89. #allthethings from @dbriars on watching the messages we're giving unintentionally. #NCTMregionals #presignite Too much to type!
  90. @dbriars asks: how might unconscious race/gender biases lead us to send micromessages to Ss about who can do math #NCTMRegionals
  91. From @dbriars. Be cognizant of your messages, both explicit and implicit, and how they impact students. #NCTMregionals #PresIgnite https://t.co/IqzxESjAZe

  92. Where do u think kids get their misconceptions? Examples used, hw given. @dbriars #NCTMregionals #presIgnite
  93. Examples @dbriars is sharing remind me of @Zakchamp talk at @ncsm - ideas kids have about what math looks like. #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  94. What messages are you giving your Ss about #math? Partner w/your peers for observation & feedback @dbriars #NCTMregionals #PresIgnite
  95. @dbriars offers #ObserveMe to uncover our unconscious biases: arrange for a peer to observe you & discuss what messages S get #NCTMRegionals
  96. @mlarson_math starts us off in a scary place: a parent meeting about implementing a new math program. Yikes! #NCTMregionals #PresIgnite

  102. Every adult in US has experienced 1,500 hours of math instruction. We know what it looks like! + @mlarson_math #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  103. + so we think it should continue to look the same...like doctors still using leeches?? @mlarson_math #presIgnite #NCTMregionals
  104. Why controversy? Misinformation on social media... plus we all think we're experts on being schooled @mlarson_math #NCTMregionals https://t.co/RF73AZaabF
    Why controversy? Misinformation on social media... plus we all think we're experts on being schooled @mlarson_math #NCTMregionals pic.twitter.com/RF73AZaabF
  105. "Nearly every American adult has had 1150 hours of mathematics instruction." ~ @mlarson_math #nctmregionals #PresIgnite
  106. We don't tell docs to use leeches instead, why do we tell Ts to return to past instruc practice @mlarson_math #NCTMregionals #presIgnite
  107. What we know works for effective math teaching is outlined in @NCTM Principles to Actions. Read it. Twice. #NCTMregionals #presignite
  108. Employers want critical thinkers. We need to teach Ss to ask what, why and when in math. @mlarson_math #NCTMregionals
  109. @mlarson_math "Our students need to learn why, how, and when, while developing positive dispositions." #NCTMregionals Phoenix
  110. #NCTMregionals #ignite#mattlarson asks why the conflict? A: we live in the shadow of 19th century math ed; we need to advocate for balance
