Description

1.

Karen Campe - National Instructor -Teachers Teaching with Technology - Texas Instruments

MATH IN MOTION with TI-Innovator Rover Robotic Vehicle

Use the TI-Innovator™ Rover robotic vehicles and TI-Basic commands to drive and explore. You will learn some easy coding, that you do right on the TI calculators, to make the Rovers travel a path, draw shapes, avoid obstacles, CRASH and MORE

2.

Eury J. Cantillo – Director of Education Submarine Force Museum

Examine some of the many ways that math is used to ensure the successful operation of a submarine.

Students participate in activities that demonstrate the role that mathematics plays in tasks ranging from figuring out where you are, to how to sink the enemy.

3.

Steve Lecky -

High School Teacher

Visiting Aliens and Hungry Fruit Flies: Using geometry and probability to solve real world (and not so real world!) problems.

Come to participate and enjoy solving a variety of interesting problems using geometry and probability.

4.

Mr. Thomas Sadowski
and
Ms. Barbara Ellen Scanley - Southern CT State University

"Nanoscience the realm of atoms and nanostructures"

Students will do a series of hands on Nanoscience experiments that explore how super small things behave differently. Tour the Nanocharacterization Laboratory, check out a Scanning Electron Microscope and see how Nanoscientist explore the Nanoworld.

5.

Dr. Marsha Davis - Eastern Connecticut State University

I Missed You Nearly

Car stunts must be very carefully planned or the stunt men and women performing them could lose their lives. In this session, students will use their mathematics to design one or more stunts and, for at least one of the stunts, students will test their design using battery-operated toys. Calculator Based Rangers (CBRs) and graphing calculators will be used to gather information about a variety of motions including the motions of battery operated toys.

Lunch in EN B 121 : 11:15-11:45 pm
Afternoon sessions: 12:00 noon -2:00 pm
