Last month, the 12th Annual MƒA MT²: Master Teachers on Teaching event showcased inspiring and thought-provoking TEDx-style talks from eight MƒA Master Teachers. The teacher speakers explored the theme of "ChatMƒA: Technology and Transformation" and what that means to them as mathematics and science professionals. Similar to past MT² events, presentations focused on classroom innovation, connections with students, and self-reflection.
