  • How real is mathematics to a fifth-grade student? Does a fifth-grade student understand what a research mathematician does? In winter 2011, Dr. Susan Cooper joined Kyla Hall and her fifth graders to explore an applied mathematics project adapted from a graduate course. This talk will share the journey of the speakers and students.
