​PRESIDENT OF NCTM, CATHY SEELEY, DELIVERS KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT
THE FOURTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE: CELEBRATING MATHEMATICS TEACHING

On Friday, 18 November 2005, TIME 2000 hosted its fourth annual conference, CELEBRATING MATHEMATICS TEACHING. A record-breaking attendance of more than 300 high school students, 30 teachers, 80 undergraduates and 15 college faculty members, were inspired by the keynote address delivered by Cathy Seeley, President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Local and nationally-acclaimed dynamic mathematics teachers made exciting presentations that involved the conference participants in mathematical investigations and explorations. More than 80 TIME 2000 students volunteered to prepare for and assist at the conference. Several TIME 2000 graduates returned to be on the program and participate in a panel discussion conducted by Senior, Shari Eng. Math for America of the Simons Foundation is gratefully acknowledged for funding the conference again this year.
