Lead Speaker:
Tracy Gatto

What mathematical decisions do your students make? How do they make them? Using episodes from two years of reflection on the way authority works in our classrooms, the speakers will identify challenges and opportunities teachers face. What mathematics do your students trust, and from whom? How can you help them develop confidence in their understanding?
