Pick My NCTM Sessions For Me. Please.

Karl Fisch, Reconciliation Commission of Canada, Apr 22, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I thought this was a clever way of (semi-)randomizing his participation at an upcoming conference on education and mathematics. You are presented with a list of sessions, a way to select one, and room for comments. Of course I helped Karl Fisch pick his sessions; my comment at the end: "It's like there's two tracks through this conference, baby-math (aka common core) and adult math (the others). Stay with the adult math. The stuff these papers look at (perspective, visualization, modelling) are the foundations of contemporary scientific reasoning (and the more they link mathematics with scientific reasoning, the better)."
