Anne McCarthy: Number Bracelets
Number bracelets are formed from repeating patterns in sequences of numbers. For instance, if the repeating numbers 3, 6, 9, 12, 3, 6, 9, 12, 3, … can easily be thought of as a loop if you picture them in their standard positions on a clock. In this session we will look at sequences of numbers that are defined recursively (meaning the next number in the list comes from the previous ones) and investigate which number bracelets appear.

Pam Smith: Six Hands-On and Engaging Number Sense Activities
In this session, various activities and puzzles aimed at number sense will be available. Teachers will rotate through several stations and get to try a variety of fun and engaging tasks.
