565- Fermi Estimation Problems: Valuing Strategies over "The Answer"

Saturday, April 16, 2016: 9:45 AM-11:00 AM
3006 (Moscone)


Lead Speaker:
Tyler P. Auer


How many bathtubs of water will you drink in your lifetime? How long would it take to count to 1 million out loud? Solve Fermi problems like these and discuss their value, their connection to the CCSSM Standards for Mathematical Practice, and strategies for implementation. Expect to work collaboratively and have fun solving problems!
