Feedback form is now closed.
This session is for math teachers interested in hands-on activities, inquiry learning and making connections to the world beyond the classroom. MathHappens will share our experience using newly available digital fabrication and other media to create models, exhibits and displays. Attendees will view and use a variety of our best work, make a mathematical device to keep, and collaborate to brainstorm new ideas. We will bring items appropriate to elementary, middle and high school. This session will include applications for the classroom as well as the programming we have provided in collaboration with museums for math field trips in the Austin area. This session will not require technology.
