The meeting began with an introduction by our former superintendent and current Executive Vice President of America’s Choice, John Fryer. Mr. Fryer spoke about the America’s Choice School Design and focused on the fact that their work is rooted in quality research about successful schools. After Mr. Fryer, our featured speaker, James Williams, presented on student misconceptions in mathematics. James presented quality research on student misconceptions in mathematics and did so in an entertaining and engaging way. James kept the crowd involved with his humor and wit. I think most of us walked away feeling much more prepared to assess and attack our student’s mathematics misconceptions.
And a huge thanks goes out to Leslie Hendricks with America’s Choice for making our event such a huge success. If any of you would like more information about the Mathematics Navigator program that James presented, please contact Leslie at…
