433- Prove It! Focusing on Mathematical Reasoning and the Pythagorean Theorem

Friday, April 15, 2011: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
140 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Ann Marie Spinelli
M. Katherine Gavin

Students may remember a+ b= c2, but often forget what it means or know when to apply it. Explore a fun, hands-on approach that encourages metacognitive reasoning and builds a deep understanding of the Pythagorean theorem. Using inductive and deductive reasoning, these field-tested activities will bring out the real mathematician in your students.
