NCTM Annual Meeting & Exposition

Hyatt Regency McCormick Place
Chicago, Illinois

Join the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics for the 2024 Annual Meeting & Exposition in Chicago, September 25–28.

This year's theme, The Math of Their Dreams: Illuminating Students’ Brilliance, captures our intent to center students and their experiences, while also being evocative—what does “the math of their dreams” bring to mind for you?

Throughout the program, you will be encouraged to explore the meaning of the theme and what you value most in mathematics.

NCTM's goal is for you to walk away with exciting new skills and techniques to illuminate your own brilliance and the brilliance of your students!

Here are just a few of the reasons you should attend:

  • Inspiring education sessions from leading mathematics educators
  • Expert mathematics education keynote speakers and leaders 
  • Networking opportunities, games, giveaways and great ideas
  • New technologies, ideas, and products on display in our exhibit hall

About the Event Theme

The Math of Their Dreams: Illuminating Students’ Brilliance 

Our students come to us with a wide range of experiences that inform how they think, how they see, and how they express themselves. They each comes to our classrooms with a unique brilliance, and it is our hope that the nature of that brilliance is illuminated for all to see- for us in a way that allows us to foster in our students the joy in learning powerful ways mathematics connects to and emerges from their natural brilliance, and for them, in a way that ensures they never lose sight of how amazing they are.

NCTM is committed to ensuring that our events are fully accessible to everyone. Visit our Accessibility & Inclusion section for more details.
