438- Bringing Algebra and Geometry Together through Linear Algebra

Friday, April 15, 2011: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Grand Ballroom VIII (JW Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Kevin Waterman
Stephanie Ragucci and Bowen Kerins

Linear algebra can bring algebraic and geometric thinking together in ways that reinforce both. Participants will sample activities from a new, NSF-funded high school course that explores vector algebra and how matrices can represent transformations in a way that introduces computer graphics and animation. The only background required is second-year algebra.
