Sparking Intellectual Curiosity and Passion in Mathematically Gifted Students

Saturday, November 11
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: 202 A

Nurture your students’ curiosity and creativity as you present them with real world situations/dilemmas that require insight, intuition, creative problem solving, and collaboration to reach effective and accurate solutions. These investigations will allow students to (a) learn about the role of several mathematically gifted individuals, including Dr. Alice Stewart, who used their gifts to save thousands of lives; (b) simulate an engineering team as it searches for solutions; (c) take on the role of lawyers who are analyzing how statistics have been manipulated; and (d) Become a team of journalists trying to determine why the math in several news articles is incorrect and what the consequences could be.
