515- Reasoning Abstractly and Quantitatively with Conic Sections

Friday, April 17, 2015: 1:00 PM-2:15 PM
253 C (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Bethany Noblitt


To “reason abstractly and quantitatively” students must decontextualize and contextualize in a mathematical situation. Aided by the TI-Nspire, we will explore how this standard for mathematical practice might play out as students explore definitions of and formulas for different conic sections in Euclidean, Taxi Cab, and Chinese Checkers geometries.
