73rd Annual OCTM Conference

October 12-13, 2023

Kalahari Resorts & Conventions (Sandusky, Ohio)

Session Proposals due February 17, 2023

Are you ready to have a  roaring good time with math? This year’s OCTM Fall Conference is scheduled for October 12-13 at Kalahari Resort & Conventions in Sandusky, Ohio.  You are invited to submit a proposal to present a session at this conference.  We know you have wonderful ideas to share!

How are you making math accessible to all students? Do you have a series of lessons or set of strategies that have been effective? Have you implemented number talks? Are you integrating a free or low cost tech tool? What are you doing to focus on the mathematical practice standards?  These are a few ideas to consider when submitting a proposal for a 50 minute or 90 minute session. 

Do you have one strategy that has worked to engage students, stretch math thinking, or address incomplete learning? Is there a math game that you and your students enjoy? Why are you passionate about math?  If this sounds like you,  submit a proposal for an 8 minute Ignite talk.  Your ignite talk will be included in a larger Ignite session. 

All session proposals are due no later than FEBRUARY 17, 2023 to give us time to review proposals and notify presenters by the end of April.  To help you plan your proposal, we have created a Tips For Success sheet, and a PDF of the online form for you to use for pre-planning.
