Call for proposals

Would you like to present at ICTCM 2018? We invite educators and administrators to submit a session proposal that highlights educational technologies in the teaching and learning of mathematics.

Presenters are invited to submit session proposals that focus on how educational technology can enhance teaching and learning. We especially seek presentations that are highly interactive in format and can address the needs of a wide range of institutional types and sizes, as well as diverse populations.

The call for proposals closes on August 16, 2017.

Submit your 2018 proposal today!

Essential Elements

  • Proposals, in addition to relating to the conference theme, are expected to highlight a deeply relevant topic and to explore trends and developments in our field while sharing best practices and innovative solutions.
  • Proposals will offer learning outcomes/goals, a clear plan to engage the audience, and will denote a particular presentation format.
  • There will be approximately 120 concurrent sessions, most of which will be 30 minutes in length, and 30 computer minicourse sessions that will be approximately 1 hour 30 minutes in length. A projector, laptop, screen, and Internet access will be provided; presenters will be responsible any printed handouts (if desired).


The Key Presenter is the principal contact and is responsible for coordinating all correspondence among co-presenters, as well as managing and facilitating the presentation.

Presentation Title

Up to 10 words that will catch the attention of conference participants and accurately describe your session.

Presentation Description

A maximum of 35 words used for our online conference program, and mobile app, to succinctly, and accurately tell participants what to expect from your session. The description should be written to help conference participants determine the scope and level of the session and its appropriateness to their needs. Descriptions should indicate who the session will particularly benefit and what they will learn.

Presentation Plan

A brief overview of your proposed activities, visual aids, and handouts. Describe how you plan to ensure audience involvement. Traditional lecture-only presentations are strongly discouraged.

Teaching Math Online

Presentations given on innovations in technology and their impact on teaching – includes WWW, distance learning, CAS, using the internet to provide an interactive teaching/learning environment, etc. Multi-media content typically consists of digital audio and video, animated text and graphics, and real time communications and interactions online.

Before Calculus

Content is diverse covering basic mathematics, pre-algebra, statistics, precalculus, college algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and pre-service mathematics teacher education.


Content is the first three courses in Calculus.

Beyond Calculus

Content includes differential equations, linear and abstract algebra, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics, applied mathematics, operations research, etc.

Course Redesign

Course redesign is the process of redesigning an entire course to achieve better learning outcomes and lower costs by taking advantage of the capabilities of technology.

Math Education, Teacher Preparation, & K-12 Applications

Mathematics content, technology, pedagogy, research, and assessment for inservice and preservice teachers. These presentations focus on the mathematics and technological preparation of prospective teachers, and applications of mathematics and technology for grades K-12.

Mobile Tablet Technologies

Presentations should be on either hardware or software based emerging technologies – including iPod, PDA’s, digital cameras, iPhones, iPads, Apple TV, tablets, pod-casting, and automated-algorithmic online homework systems. Other systems include the TI-Navigator, Smart Boards, and other presentation technologies. Survey, expository, as well as demonstration talks are welcomed.

MyLab Math

Presentations that focus on the use of MyLab Math in the classroom. MyLab Math is an online interactive and educational system and covers courses from basic math through calculus and statistics, as well as math for business and future educators.

Pedagogy Research Assessment

Presentations given on teaching changes and research into how learning occurs. Presentations can include assessing the impact of technology on learning objectives.


Presentations may include all aspects of teaching statistics, including data collection strategies, modeling, applications, and conceptual understanding of theoretical concepts.

Real-World Applications

The focus of this strand is on real world applications. Many of the talks will involve mathematical modeling and simulation with specific examples of real world applications. Areas of application include, but are not limited to, the space program, climate change, the current economic situation, population dynamics, sports, and military applications.
