ICTM will not be holding our own annual conference in fall 2024, instead we are helping to support the NCTM annual conference that is taking place in Chicago from September 25 - 28! The theme of the conference is The Math of Their Dreams: Illuminating Students’ Brilliance. If you have never been to national conference, it is an amazing experience with thousands of Math Educators (from ALL grade levels) from around the country and features many keynote speakers and different session formats to make the most of your conference experience.  Registration is open! To learn more about the conference and different registration options, click HERE.


The 2023 Conference Was A Success! Thank you to the hundreds of math educators who came together for an inspiring day of learning, sharing, and connecting! The website for the 2023 conference is shown below to remember what was accomplished!
