On Friday, 22 November, TIME 2000 hosted its twelfth annual conference, Celebrating Mathematics Teaching. More than 350 high school students with more than 30 teachers attended the conference. Also in attendance were 75 undergraduates, several preservice teachers, and 10 college faculty members. The opening session featured mathematician, James Tanton, mathematician-in-residence at the Mathematical Association of America. His most exciting and dynamic presentation, “Exploding Dots: Utilizing K-12 Arithmetic and Algebra (and Beyond!) in One Fell Swoop!,” 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 75 TIME 2000 undergraduates volunteered to prepare for and assist at the conference. Six TIME 2000 graduates returned to be on the program and two participated in a panel discussion conducted by Junior, Kristin Tucker. Texas Instrument handheld devices were raffled at the luncheon. Many thanks to the Jim and Marilyn Simons Foundation for generously funding the conference.
