Featured Speaker Presentation: 'Who Owns the Learning?'
Who should be working harder during class? The teacher or the students?  In the "Age of the Empowered Learner" we can equip our students to take responsibility to manage a large proportion of their learning.  We can also empower our students to create content that contributes to the learning of their peers.   Research indicates that one of the most powerful strategies to improve learning is to provide students with self assessment strategies.  This talk will provide step-by-step strategies that creates a culture of the empowered self directed and collaborative learner.

Featured Speaker Presentation: 'The Joy of Exeter'
Amazing things have happened in the past 30 years in how we use technology to learn, play with and teach mathematics. Much of what I have learned and used I saw for the first time at this conference. Some of my favorite times using technology to play with mathematics will be presented including a plea to take advantage of the technologies that allow us to play in 3D with things mathematical and things scientific.

The Future of Mathematical Learning
Classical mathematics (calculus/differential equations/statistics) has been the cornerstone of our understanding of the physical world for the last 250 years.  But there are many areas of life in which our classical models have not been able to penetrate.  New models are needed to understand such phenomena as traffic flow, the spread of forest fires, the fragility of communications networks, the spread of infectious disease within a social network, the origin of cooperation in a society of insects or of people and many other problems in the biological and social sciences.  In this talk we will look at new mathematical models of the world that have emerged in the last 15 years and get a glimpse of the mathematical methods our students will use in their careers.

Magic and Merriment
One of only 50 living sword swallowers in the entire world, Roderick Russell has been described as strangely sophisticated, successfully blending suggestion and psychology with his own personal mind-over-body techniques to present a show that bravely pushes the limits of the possible - both physically and mentally. Presenting the most dangerous and bizarre feats with wit, charm and style, Roderick also deftly navigates deep into the minds of the audience to create the most personal and profound type of theater experience. Call him a sword swallower. Call him a mentalist.
