The 2017 conference will be held in the Hancock Conference Center on the John A Logan College campus, a 15 minute drive from SIU Carbondale. 

This annual program will feature speakers, many of whom are classroom teachers, in sessions that deal with the Common Core in Mathematics - content, teaching and assessing, including formative and summative assessment; problem solving; technology - calculators and iPads; connections between mathematics and science, music and literacy; proportional reasoning; writing and evaluating standards; teaching young children mathematics; STEM; cooperative learning; content vocabulary; and other topics of interest to teachers at all levels PreK through 14. Teachers will receive professional development credits as in the past.

The 2017 Keynote Speaker will be Stephen Grimmer. The title of his talk is "Strange Bedfellows? Mathematical Artists and Artistic Mathematicians." In his talk, Mr. Grimmer, who has a background in mathematics, will explore historical and contemporary uses of mathematics as inspiration, subject, and method for artists throughout history. He has lots of mathematics and art resources on which he will base his talk. The former elementary school in Alto Pass houses his studio, The Alto Clay Works.
Dr. George Reese, ICTM President, Bob Mann, ICTM Past-President, and other ICTM colleagues will be speaking on the program, along with many classroom teachers from throughout Illinois.”

“Mr. Bob Baer of the Department of Physics at SIUC will give an opening talk on the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse that is igniting interest in a new generation of students and citizen scientists.”
