I’m excited to be heading back to the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) for their annual Teaching Contemporary Mathematics (TCM) conference.
I’ll be presenting Building Bridges through Computing, in which I’ll talk about how mathematical computing projects in Python and Scratch can build bridges between theory and practice, the procedural and the abstract, and the simple and the impossible! My talk will focus on Pre Calculus and Calculus topics, and include projects like solving systems of equations, estimating roots, and elementary numerical methods.
I presented at TCM in 2016 on Mathematical Simulations in Scratch and really enjoyed my visit. The conference is focused on big ideas and brings in lots of inspired teachers, and NCSSM is a unique school with incredible programs and exceptional teachers.
TCM 2019 runs January 24-26. You can find out more information here.
