    Aligning to our annual theme of Ensuring Mathematical Success for All, RIMTA welcomes Cathy Humphreys to Rhode Island.  She is best known for her work with Number Talks, short discussions between a teacher and her students about how to solve a particular mental math problem.  The focus is not on getting the correct answer, but on discussing possible methods of finding the answer.  Cathy and Ruth Parker discuss number talks in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hmh8pwL1sLg.

    Cathy Humphreys is currently a doctoral student at Stanford University, where she studies mathematics teaching and learning.  She has taught Grades 2-12 in California public schools for thirty years, has worked as an instructor for the Mathematics Education Collaborative and for Math Solutions, and has served as a mathematics coach for the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative.  Cathy is a co-author of Making Number Talks Matter and Connecting Mathematical Ideas.
