## Date:

Join EDC at the 2015 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Annual Conference (April 13–15), National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Research Conference (April 13–15), and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Meeting (April 15–18). This year, our mathematics education experts will present sessions on formative assessment, equity, research-practice collaborations, use of technology, preschool mathematics learning, diagnosing student misconceptions, and the CCSSM Standards for Mathematical Practice. If you plan to attend, be sure to get to an EDC session (** check out the full schedule below)**.
