On Friday, 18 November, TIME 2000 hosted its tenth annual conference, Celebrating Mathematics Teaching. More than 350 high school students with more than 30 teachers attended the conference. Also in attendance were 80 undergraduates, several preservice teachers, and 15 college faculty members. The opening session featured a past president of the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State, Dr. Jim Matthews, professor of mathematics education at Siena College. His exciting and dynamic presentation, “The Magic of Mathematics,” set the tone for an outstanding conference. Local exemplary mathematics teachers made exciting presentations that involved the conference participants in mathematical investigations and explorations. The 80 TIME 2000 undergraduates volunteered to prepare for and assist at the conference. Nine TIME 2000 graduates returned to be on the program and one participated in a panel discussion conducted by Senior Mara Markinson. Texas Instrument TI ‘Nspire handheld devices were raffled at the luncheon.
