4.8 out of 5 rating on the overall quality of the 2017 conference

Being able to connect on a deep level with other math recovery colleagues, math coaches and interventionists across the country gives an outside perspective that deepens knowledge and practice. I am always challenged to think deeply and learn more about early numeracy at the conference. We can only improve numeracy education through our continual learning and work, and the Math Recovery Conference never fails to inspire and empower our work.

Attending the conference re-energizes me. I add a new layer of knowledge and see things presented in a different way, which allows me to grow and re-think the work that is happening in my school. I will hopefully move my teachers to understand the teaching and learning cycle in a deeper way. I have gained a deeper understanding of the structuring with the new levels and am excited to dig into this work with some students. Thank you for an amazing week!

One of the things that is so wonderful about coming to the conference each year is the opportunity to talk to other coaches, teachers, etc. Talking math at lunch and after each sessions is a common thing. I also greatly appreciate that we have 'access' to the great leaders of the Math Recovery® research and teaching ideas. Thank you for this opportunity. It feeds my math soul!

This was my first experience at the Math Recovery Conference. Contributing to my professional growth was the ability to networking with people at the conference and having the opportunity to strengthen the math leadership team in our district. As well, I got a better idea of implementation whole group, small group, and intervention ideas that will strengthen our math instruction.

What is the importance of individual registration?
There are several session choices an individual will mark during the registration process that will require individual certifications for each participant; therefore, you will need to be logged into your Math Recovery® account to connect your certifications with the correct session choices. If you have not attended a course prior to the conference, you will not have the required certification for some session choices. If you do not have an account already, see the FAQ directed to this topic.
What if I am not a member, do not have an account, or cannot remember my password?
If you are not a Math Recovery® Member and do not have an account, you must "create" a complimentary account before registering for the conference. If you have previously taken a course or registered for past conferences and cannot remember your password, please do not create a second account. Click on the "forgot password" button and follow the instructions to reset your password.
Can I bring a guest with me included in my registration fee?
As always, we encourage that you bring colleagues and friends with you to the US Math Recovery Council® conference; however, each registered participant will need to pay a registration fee for their own attendance.
