Hi Denney and All,

Just a reminder that there is also a numeracy-focused pre-session at

Fractions, Decimals, and Percents: Coming Together for Understanding.
The all-day pre-session features nationally known presenters sharing
great classroom activities and raising important questions about how we
teach rational numbers. The pre-session, which includes a continental
breakfast and lunch, is organized by the Adult Numeracy Network (ANN).

Hope to see all math friends there!
