Keys to Successful Teaching is Dr. Frank Wang's compelling story of his transformation from an overlooked, underperforming student to a mathematics PhD, teacher, and CEO of a major publishing company. It has inspired teachers of all subjects and grade levels, from public to private schools, parochial to Indian Reservation schools - even to standing-room audiences at national teaching conferences.
With insightful humor and anecdotes, Dr. Wang draws on his own experiences as a student and teacher to urge educators to their fullest potential with five simple, easy-to-apply, yet powerful techniques for improving teaching effectiveness.
July 20-21, 2006 - Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching
Dr. Wang is a featured speaker at the 2006 Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching in Houston, TX.
Last year's CAMT talk saw Dr. Wang in front of a capacity crowd of over 600 people (see picture at the top of this page). Fire codes required that many people be turned away from the full room. This year's talks, held at the George R. Brown Convention Center, find Dr. Wang in rooms with capacities of 1200. It would still be wise to arrive early however, as last year's talk was full 15 minutes before the scheduled time.
