Doing Problems That Matter

When: Tuesday, September 21, 2021 | 7 p.m. Central time
Technology: TI‑Nspire™ CX Technology, TI-84 Plus family
Presenters: Curtis Brown, Gail Burrill, Tom Dick, Ph.D.

Mathematics is a beautiful language that can be used to describe, explore and understand this complicated world we live in.

In this webinar, we’ll investigate potentially messy, real-world questions and the use of technology to connect meaningful mathematics to questions arising in the world around us.

From predicting herd immunity, to modeling how a virus spreads, even exploring the wage gap, the mathematics inherent to each of these situations, and more, are far more meaningful than the abstract work students often find themselves tasked with. Join us in exploring the power of technology for creating and analyzing useful mathematical models.
