Hall F (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Ron Lancaster

The Housekeeper and the Professor, a novel by Yoko Ogawa, and The Professor's Most Beloved Equation, a movie based on the book, both tell a touching story about memory, family, and a boy with a flat head named Root who grows up to be a math teacher. This presentation will appeal to teachers wanting to use fiction and film to teach algebra and geometry.
