- Questions
- Why do we teach proof in geometry to ensure all students have access to and understanding of proof?
- How can we foster an environment of collaboration and curiosity in mathematics?
- How can we use proofs to teach students literacy skills in mathematics?
- How can we use proofs to help teach students how to productively struggle?
- What does a healthy mathematics community look like and how can we use community to heal math trauma and foster resilience in problem solving?
- How do we decenter white male mathematicians in teaching geometry?
- How can we use portfolios in mathematics to assess student growth and help students to see their own growth?
- How can we disrupt students’ internal narratives of fixed mathematics ability?
- How can geometry be used to help students rediscover the power of play and creativity in problem solving?
- How can teaching proofs be used to improve mathematical communication between students?
- How can we use technology tools in teaching geometry and proof?
- How can we incorporate art in teaching geometry? (Needs to be more focused)
- How can we use journals in mathematics to help students understand themselves as mathematicians, and their mathematical process?
- How can mathematics be used to help students explore and understand identity and their place in the world?
- How can we use games to foster creativity and collaboration in mathematics?
- How can we reimagine the divide of students between varying levels of math courses?

- Possible project ideas
- Workbook of selected proofs/puzzles that build on each other
- Outline/Example of a portfolio based assessment system
- Website/blog: Community Mathematics —> daily/weekly puzzles
- Series of collaborative puzzles?

- Unit/Lesson Plans
- Something else??????
- Design a project for students to do
