NCTM 2013 Schedule

This morning I packed up my hot-off-the-press business cards and jumped on a plane to Denver for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Conference (NCTM 2013). All the cool kids are doing it (namely my biggest mathteacherturnedblogger crush Dan Meyer) so I’m gonna jump on that train and share which sessions I’m most looking forward to.
