To create your agenda for the 2016 MidSchoolMath National Conference: 
Only registered attendees can create personal agendas. If you registered prior to December 31, 2015, you'll receive an activation email on January 4, 2016. If you registered after that date, you'll receive an access email within 2-3 business days. As the activation invitation message comes through an automated email system, please make sure to check your "spam" or "promotions" folders for this message. You may wish to add the email address notifications@sched.org to your contacts to make sure your access invitation and other conference announcements sent through the schedule system are delivered to your primary inbox.

Once your account is activated, you can select the sessions you’d like to add to your schedule and create your own personal agenda for the 2016 MidSchoolMath National Conference! You can add sessions in several ways, either by clicking on the circle next to the session name so it changes to a check-mark or by clicking on the “add to my sched” button on the session description pages.  Please remember to select only one session per time period! (For complete details on setting up your account and personalized agenda, check out the Sched Guide for Attendees!)

Over the course of the two days of the conference, you'll get to attend five Master Classes (75 minutes each) and three Cafe Sessions (45 minutes each).

If you are attending with a group of colleagues from your school or district, we encourage you to divide and concur! When you separate out, you can attended a wider number of different sessions during each time slot. After the conference, you can share notes, handouts and lesson ideas, bringing the broadest range of resources back to your school!

Trying to decide which concurrent sessions to attend? Here’s what you’ll want to know:

There are four types of concurrent sessions at the conference: Engage & Explore, Math Story Projects, Growth Mindset and Powerful Pedagogy. A diverse range of content and math topics are covered across all types of sessions. Each session features a set of “tags” that describe the content and subject matter. When you read a session description, you can review the tags listed at the bottom to ensure this session will be of interest to you. You can then click on an individual tag to see what other sessions are being offered that address that particular topic or content area.

You can also search to see all sessions with a particular tag. For example, if you teach students with special needs and are interested in attending sessions that will address and discuss modifications and adaptations, go to the Sched Search field (located in the right-hand column on your screen, under the icons), and search for “Learning for All” or “Differentiated Instruction.” This will bring up all sessions with these tags. You can also search by grade level, for example “6th Grade" or subject area, like "Geometry" to find sessions that align to specific grade level standards or subjects. Subjects without a particular grade level will provide content or lessons relevant across 5th through 8th grade.

What if a session I want fills?

MidSchoolMath strives to offer a smaller, more personable conference experience, with session rooms that range in size from 40 to 120. You'll see that some of the most popular sessions are offered twice to ensure that more attendees can experience them! However, because of our intentionally smaller room sizes, popular sessions can still fill quickly. We'll do our best on our end to adjust rooms and encore spots to ensure that the most popular sessions are as accessible as they can be!

If a session you want to attend is full, you can opt to be added to the wait list. If we are able to increase the capacity, it may be added to your schedule - but in the meantime, we recommend picking an alternate session for that time slot. Thanks to the highly-focused nature of MidSchoolMath, you're sure to find another engaging session during the time slot that will be relevant to you!

How do I know what I signed up for? Can I change my schedule?

You can log-back into SCHED at any time to review your schedule, change your schedule or review session descriptions. Plan to finalize your schedule by Wednesday, February 10. Once at the Conference, you'll be provided with a print copy of your schedule in your registration packet. You'll also receive a daily email from SCHED with your personalized agenda and can access SCHED while at the conference from your smartphone or tablet!

It says I'm on a Wait List when I select a session. What does that mean? 
If the session is currently full, but you add it to your schedule you will be added to the Wait List. Depending on session times, schedules and a/v requirements, we are able to move presenters into a larger room to open up more seats.

So you can choose to go on the wait list now, and see if space is added. If seats are added, you'll move from the waitlist into the attendee list. However, seats may not be added - so if there's another session you are also interested in attending, you might sign up for that instead! If you have selected waitlisted sessions, you can check back periodically to see if your status has changed. We do recommend de-selecting yourself from the waitlist and signing up for another session prior to the start of the conference.
