MTC Online: Making Math Bigger, with Dr. Hortensia Soto!
January 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Facilitated by Hortensia Soto, Professor of Mathematics, Colorado State University.
If you have heard of the movie “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” then you have an insight into this workshop.
We will explore some mathematical topics in a life-size manner, but don’t worry, we can also explore it at a smaller level. There will be lots of options for engagement – just like what we want for our students. As a participant you have the option as to how you will engage, but in an effort to maximize fun, please bring some of these materials: rope/string, matchbox car/Tonka truck, GI-Joe/Wonder-Woman doll, painter’s tape, a protractor, and right-angle tool. Feel free to improvise on these materials, and be sure that you have plenty of floor space (or table space) around you the day of the workshop.
Finally, don’t forget your imagination and fun-meter!
