The NCTM Regional Conference in Denver, Colorado, will be held October 7-8, 2010. I’ll be presenting two sessions at the conference:

  • Developing Geometric Thinking (Grades 6‑8), Thursday, October 7, 12:30‑1:30 p.m., Colorado Convention Center, Korbel 4C
    • Illuminations ( offers free resources that develop geometric reasoning skills. The Tessellation Creator allows students to explore patterns with polygons. Paper Pool requires students to consider similar figures in context. Several other Illuminations lessons in geometry will be examined.
  • New and Preservice Teachers Workshop, Thursday, October 7, 10:30 a.m.‑12:00 p.m., Colorado Convention Center, Korbel 4B

If you happen to be in Denver the same weekend, please stop by and say, “Hi!”

    FYI, October 8 is a Friday. I was wondering how you were going to be at two conferences on the 8th, until I realized you probably meant the 7th.

    By now, Chad, you’ve read my blog long enough to realize that I’m superhuman — I can be in two places at once! 😉

    D’oh! Yep, I’ll be in Denver on Thu, October 7. ** The date has been fixed above. ** Any chance I’ll see you there, Chad?

    Unfortunately, I don’t have your ability to be two places at once. 😉

    Unless and until they move the west coast further east, I will not be able to attend. I will keep checking to see if you eventually end up closer to my neighborhood. I pray for your success at both of these events.
