This two - day activity will familiarize your students with this extremely powerful geometric tool, Geometer's Sketchpad. This is a must have in every math classroom. The preview just displays the topic headings.
This is a presentation I give to math students to introduce them to the world or programming. This packet includes a 4 page handout with 5 sample programs of various skill level/difficulty. It is aimed at the TI-82, 83, 84 families of calculators. It will work with the nSpire but these are more c
Of the many variations on the art of woodturning, the Rose Engine Lathe provides a very nice mathematical extension to our activity.
The mechanical difference which makes Rose Engine Lathes mathematically interesting is that the headstock and tailstock rock back and forth while the wooden spindle
Programming concepts can be introduced to students at younger ages thanks to applications like Scratch. However, the user friendliness of these types of games does not prepare students to create applications on their own. The problem is that making this process easy adds layers of abstraction that
