    "Scratch"ing the Surface and Minding the Gap William McNeary
    (wwmcneary@semo.edu )
    Southeast Missouri State University
    Scratch is a simplified coding environment that can be utilized in multiple ways. In an introduction to the coding environment, attendees will learn to build simple scripts. Presenter will also demonstrate a more significant script built to model/compare fractions.

    A Graphical Approach to Quadratic Functions Zandra de Araujo
    (dearaujoz@missouri.edu )
    University of Missouri
    This session explores an innovative way to introduce students to quadratic functions by exploring the products of linear functions. In emphasizing the graphical representations of quadratic functions, students can engage deeply in sense-making and draw connections to linear functions.
    Additional Speakers: Sheunghyun Yeo, Wenmin Zhao
