On March 19, Niskayuna High School was home to the 2016 Hudson-Mohawk Area Math Conference, which brought together over 450 educators from across New York State, grades K-12 to share strategies and best practices.

The conference focused teaching strategies, technology in the classroom and computer science.

The conference provided an opportunity for colleagues to learn from one another and return to their district with fresh ideas to help strengthen student learning and achievement.

"Through collaboration, we are becoming more familiar with the shifts of the Common Core standards and the instructional strategies that they require, and this is starting to pay off for our students," said Niskayuna’s Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Lauren Gemmill.

"Students are not just learning the steps required to answer problems – they are learning how to approach and solve problems,� she said. "They are learning the deep thinking that is at the heart of math.�
