HCTM Events

HCTM organizes multiple conferences and events throughout the academic year that provides professional learning opportunities for in-service and pre-service mathematics teachers. Join in on professional conversations and presentations about the teaching and learning of K–12 mathematics from knowledgeable, and experienced mathematics educators from around the state of Hawai‘i and the US!

We are especially looking for classroom teachers who are doing creative and innovative lessons and activities that increase student motivation and understanding to host our webinars (and hopefully in-person conferences and workshops in the future).

Contact us if you would like to be a presenter at a future conference or webinar.

"Engaging Students Wherever They Are" (Formerly "Virtual Mini Conference")

Saturday, January 23, 2021
8:15 - 10:45 a.m.

>> REGISTRATION LINK <<

Session 1
8:30 – 9:30 a.m.
"Yay or Nay? Let's try!"

Distance Learning has been tough for all of us. But, as always, teachers have prevailed because they are willing to try new things and adjust based on student feedback. Please join us for a session where I'll share 10 strategies that I've tried - some self-discovered and others adapted for my math classes from amazing educators in the #808educate network. In this session you'll get to experience the strategy, earning points along the way, and getting bonus points for if it was a "yay" or a "nay" in my class this past semester.

Daphne Okunaga has spent 15 years as a math teacher at Pearl City High School. She serves as Academy Lead of International Business, state trainer for the Introduction to College Mathematics course, Smarter Balanced Performance and Practice Committee Member, and a Hawaii State Teacher Fellow Alumni. She is the 2017 PAEMST Awardee, Teach It Hawaii Outstanding Educator, and Life Changer of the Year Nominee. Believing education is more than standards, Daphne is an active Charger alumni. She is the academic advisor for football, graduation coordinator, School Community Council Chairperson, and a member of the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce.

Session 2
9:45 – 10:45 a.m.
"Creating Community in Synchronous Online Class Sessions"

Teaching synchronously online creates many challenges, such as keeping your students engaged and creating community like you might in a F2F class. Many of us have experienced staring at those tiny black squares with the sound of crickets in the zoom room. In this webinar, I will share some ways to promote engagement and sense of belonging in an online class with synchronous sessions. In other words, how to make your zoom (WebEx, Google) room a fun and exciting space to learn in.

Nadine Wolff teaches Mathematics in the Math & Sciences Department at Kapi`olani Community College. She has been teaching for twenty years and ventured into online education about eight years ago. When she is not teaching math she enjoys traveling, ocean time, and outdoor activities.

AHA! Finding the Joy in Mathematics! The 2019 annual HCTM conference was held at the beautiful Hawaii Baptist Academy in Nu‘uanu. We were very fortunate to have 2019-2020 NCTM President Dr. Robert Q. Berry III as our keynote speaker. He shared his experiences and thoughts about equity and social justice in mathematics education. The HCTM board would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Berry, the 19 speakers, 4 poster session presenters, and exhibitors who contributed to this special day of professional learning.

Elementary School Mini Conference (2019)

Saturday, February 23, 2019

Salt Lake Elementary School

The 2019 Elementary School Mini Conference was a resounding success, with six knowledgeable educators, who each presented on a different topic. Sessions included the game of NIM, integrating mathematics in STEM tasks, and literacy in mathematics. A number of ready-to-use tasks and pedagogical techniques to engage students in doing mathematics were shared!
