OCTM 67th Annual Conference
OCTM's 67th annual conference, held at the Columbus Greater Convention Center, provided a wonderful opportunity to connect Ohio's mathematics educators and enable them to grow professionally and to deepen their understanding of mathematics. On October 20, 2017, a scheduled CCS Professional Development Day, CCS Teaching & Learning covered one day registration expenses enabling nearly ninety 6-12 math teachers to attend conference sessions and workshops.
Positive feedback from attendees indicate that conference attendees had a great time and that teachers were anxious to share their learning and insights when they return to their buildings.
