Friday Keynote: Pamela Weber Harris
Real Math for All Students - How do different perspectives on learning math affect both the teacher and learner? How can we leverage those differences to help all students construct real mathematics? What is real math? Math is figure-out-able! And if we teach it that way, more students can learn more math.
