Thursday, October 27, 2016: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
228 (Phoenix Convention Center)


Lead Speaker:
Sarah Anderson
Patrick M. Kimani


Students struggle with finding sample spaces and knowing when it is appropriate to use permutations, combinations, or other strategies. Yet without mature counting techniques, it is impossible to do probability. Participants will engage in solving a counting problem, exploring the mathematics within, and discussing implications for teaching.
