It's Time to Make Multiplication Facts Fun!:  Traci Cotton, Jackson Elementary Math Coach, Everett SD
Are you looking for fun ways to practice multiplication facts? Time tests and flash cards are not engaging and can cause a lot of stress. Enjoy engaging, fun games to practice facts in a meaningful and stress-free way in this session

Understanding and Crafting a Paper Math Puzzle for Publicity:Joyce Frost, Lake Washington SD, Math Tutor

MathJam @ NWMI: Benjamin Leis, Middle School Math Circle Coach
https://mathsjam.com/cities/seattle/   https://mathsjam.com/  http://mymathclub.blogspot.com  
MathsJam is a monthly opportunity for like-minded self-confessed maths enthusiasts to get together in a pub and share stuff they like. Puzzles, games, problems, or just anything they think is cool or interesting. We'll be putting on a special session at NWMI to give you a taste of what goes on (minus the pub).  This is an opportunity to do some hands-on math, focus on the joy within mathematics, socialize and to hopefully bring some ideas back to your classes.
(Benjamin Leis is a system programmer and math enthusiast. He has been leading math circles at the elementary and middle school level for the last 5 years and is a recent NWMC presenter).

The Three Square Problem (No, it's not nine!): Randall Creek
Have you ever worked on a really challenging math problem, and then had the answer elegantly present itself and/or connect unexpectedly to some other cool branch of math (like the Fibonacci numbers)?  Well this is not one of those problems, ha ha j/k.  I am still blown away by the solution!  And the best part is that there are multiple points of entry, so it is developmentally appropriate for all students and teachers :) 


Local Hosts: Clint Chan, Joyce Frost
