Using Photos, Videos and TI Technology to Connect Mathematics With the World Around Us

Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Mathematical Modeling
Speakers: Ron Lancaster

We will put on a pair of mathematical glasses to look for where math lives in the world around us, and we will practice the art of developing mathematical questions related to where we encounter mathematics.

Because this is a webinar, we will not be able to go outside for a walk, but we will be able to examine photos and videos to view the world through a mathematical lens. We will discuss how TI technology can be used be used to support students through a journey that begins with them answering our mathematical questions and that leads students to posing and solving their own questions related to what is of interest to them.
