NISOD 2014 Impromptu Presentation

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I just had a wonderful impromptu session at NISOD 2014 (for those of you wondering, “impromptu” is the correct pronunciation of the graphic on the left). The presenter fell through and the group of us just kind of got together and shared ideas and questions with respect to technology in the classroom. I wanted to […]

The nice thing about math is that in general we always know there is going to be one answer, but sometimes we don’t know what that answer is but we’ll know when the answer “just doesn’t look right.”.  Take a look at this clip of Abbot & Costello, and see if you can figure out […]

This video post shows just a little bit on how the math that students learn (geometry, trig, graphing) are used in media today such as the building of Disney’s Pixar characters such as Woody from Toy Story and Sulley from Monster’s Inc. Take a look at how math and technology are intertwined.
