    Algorithms are amazing historical achievements, but they are terrible teaching tools. If mathematics teaching is not about mimicking algorithms, then what? Join author Pam Harris to experience real math-ing, where we teach students to reason like mathematicians and get better results for more students.

    Pam Harris is changing the way we view and teach mathematics. She is a mom, a former high school math teacher, a university lecturer, an author, and a mathematics teachers educator. Real Math is thinking mathematically, not just mimicking what a teacher does. Pam helps leaders and teachers to make the shift that supports students to learn Real Math.

    Pamela Weber Harris is the author of several books, including Building Powerful NumeracyDiscovering Advanced Algebra, and a book for professional development leaders. A former secondary mathematics teacher, Pam currently teaches at Texas State University, is a K-12 mathematics education consultant, a T³ (Teachers Teaching with Technology) Instructor, and an author and coauthor of several professional development workshops. Pam presents frequently at regional and national conferences.  Her particular interests include teaching real math, building powerful numeracy, sequencing rich tasks to construct mathematics, using technology appropriately, smart assessment, and vertical connectivity in curricula in schools PK-12.
