129- From Grade 5 to High School: An Algebraic Investigation

Thursday, April 26, 2012: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Salon C (Marriott Downtown)
Lead Speaker:
Al Cuoco
Alicia Chiasson

The speakers will trace a trajectory for a probability investigation, the sums distribution from throwing several dice, that they introduced into a grade-5 class and that led to a sequence culminating in a grade-12 treatment of generating polynomials. See how the fifth graders' work previewed the mathematics used in grade 12.
