278- Mathematical Expeditions in Polar Science

Friday, November 14, 2014: 3:15 PM-4:30 PM
Capital Ballroom 1/2/3 (Marriott) (Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Lynn Foshee Reed

There are multidisciplinary challenges facing our planet, and polar science provides particularly interesting contexts to engage students. We will examine three mathematics lessons based on shrinking Arctic sea ice extent, melting glaciers, and accurately measuring Weddell seals. Mathematical modeling and data representation will be unifying themes.
