We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that visited us at the 2012 NCTM Annual Meeting and Expo! It was wonderful to see and meet each and every one of you.

We received an abundance of praise from our current Big Ideas Math users, and excitement from those that were new the program. It was fantastic to see such enthusiasm surrounding Big Ideas Math from amazing educators and professionals.
