South Colonie to host 61st Annual Hudson-Mohawk Valley Mathematics Conference

South Colonie Central School District faculty will team up with the Hudson-Mohawk Valley Area Mathematics conference committee to host the 61st Annual Hudson-Mohawk Valley Mathematics Conference.  The conference will be held on Saturday, March 14 at Colonie Central High School.

“We are thrilled to be hosting this year’s conference,” said Superintendent of Schools Jonathan Buhner.  “As we continue to support our students in an ever-changing educational landscape, it is extremely important that our educators have the connections and resources to stay up-to-date and relevant with new instructional methods.  This conference provides a great opportunity to learn techniques from colleagues in the field ensuring that our students leave our classrooms with a strong foundation in mathematics and that they continue to meet the New York State Next Generation Mathematics Learning Standards.”

The conference is open to educators and individuals interested in mathematics education.  Sessions include: Student Driven Math Instruction, Music Man: Creating music through code, The SAMR Model and Digital Learning Experiences, Exploring and Creating with Desmos Geometry, Integrating Computer Science in Math Lessons, and more.

“Together, we have the opportunity to prepare our students for a variety of career paths,” said Colonie Central High School Associate Principal Lindsay Tresansky. “It has been a pleasure working with our mathematics team and the rest of the committee to pull this conference together.  I am really looking forward to it.”

Conference registration is open until Wednesday, March 12. Early registration ends Wednesday, March 5.  Visit the conference website to learn more or to register now.
