512- CANCELLED: Hooked on Conics Worked for Me

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


Lead Speaker:
Lauren Jeneva Moseley
Jeremy Robert Newton and Jonathan Matthew Clark


Hands-on teaching approaches make conics come to life. Using wax paper, Wikki Stix, cheese, thumbtacks, flashlights, and string, all students can investigate conics. This promotes conceptual understanding and connections between two and three dimensions. Technology and trigonometry will help us verify that we can generate the same curve in 2-D and 3-D.
