Fly into Math...with Smart Skies!
In this computer based workshop, participants will be introduced to NASA Smart Skies- a set of problem based activities set in the context of air traffic control.You will use a web based simulator to solve realistic air traffic control problems by applying proportional reasoning and distance-time-rate relationships. The Smart Skies activities are aligned to national math and science standards for grades 5-9 and to math standards in all 50 states. All online materials are free and classroom ready including the simulator, introductory videos, print based student workshops and teacher guides.

Take Off into Math with NASA Smart Skies
This session will train participants to use the award wining "Smart Skies" program with their students. Using computer based resources, this on line program enables mathematics students to explore and apply decision-making and proportional reasoning skills to resolve distance-rate-time problems in realistic air traffic control situations. To solve problems, students use a web-based interactive Air Traffic Control (ATC) Simulator that represents an air traffic controller's screen. Accompanying teacher and student materials and workbooks provide the underlying mathematics and strategies to enable students to optimize their solutions.

Deep Dive into Math - Take the Technology Plunge!
Learn to launch terrific tech tools (VoiceThread, Smart Notebook, GeoGebra, Screenr, SlideRocket, Adobe Connect, Khan Academy, Glogster, Google Docs,and Oneeko) to assess a deeper level of understanding from your students. Glide past multiple choice tests and dive into tech and project-based evaluations that will make deeper connections with students. Assessments anchored to the common core help students conceptualize and apply the material as well as make connections via technology. Walk away with practical projects you can present to your own students immediately!

Implementing Common Core State Math Standards with Open-Online Resources
In Jordan District’s implementation of the Common Core State Standards in math, online resources have replaced math textbooks. Teachers across Utah are accessing this freely available, openly licensed learning content via a WordPress blog. Join us to consider the collaboration and content development, the advantages of a blog format, teachers’ acceptance and progress, the results and effects of our implementation so far, and how we are adjusting for the future.

NASA CONNECT: MEASUREMENT, RATIOS, AND GRAPHING: 
3, 2, 1…. Crash!
Using the NASA award winning Mathematics on line program, participants will learn how NASA improves aircraft performance and safety by conducting extreme tests such as crashing planes, skidding tires, and blasting water. Participants will build small “fizz” rocket vehicles using measurement, ratios, and graphing to make predictions and draw conclusions during their extreme tests. Participants conduct simple classroom rocket car experiment to (1) measure and collect data, (2) develop ratios and graphs to analyze their data, (3) compare their results, and (4) predict possible solutions for their real-world problems.

Accessing the Common Core State Standards for Math with Technology
Teaching with technology isn't limited to graphing calculators. This session will focus on using free, Web-based tools (e.g., virtual manipulatives, Google docs, and wiki pages) to help students develop mathematical proficiency while exploring the CCSS domain progressions of number and operations—fractions (3–5) and the number system (6–8).
