52- Functions as Dances: Experience Variation and Relative Rate of Change

Thursday, April 16, 2015: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
157 B/C (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Daniel Scher
Scott Steketee


How better to explore rate of change than as independent and dependent variables dancing together? We’ll vary x and y by doing both real and computer-based dances based on geometric transformations, dynagraphs, and Cartesian graphs of various functions. Bring a laptop or iPad with Sketchpad. Leave with student-ready geometry and algebra activities.
