We had such a fun NCSM 2016 conference in Oakland! Our professional development team and many of our Math Solutions authors were on hand to share their wisdom with supervisors and teachers, and we had so many wonderful conversations in our booth. We hope you were able to make it out to our sessions and stop by and say hello!

Each year Math Solutions hosts a NCSM party, and this year we were thrilled to be able to invite supervisors, teachers, and our authors to join us for an evening of fun and exploration at the Exploratorium in San Francisco!

It was a very special night for the Math Solutions team. Marilyn Burns was on hand to explain her love for the Exploratorium, and because it was so close to her birthday, we were able to salute her properly with a birthday serenade. We also had the chance to celebrate the careers of Nickie Rizzo and Marji Freeman, two beloved teammates who are retiring.

We made sure each party guest left with an original piece of math-inspired artwork from the Exploratorium’s Drawing Board.
