ICTCM - New Math Lit talk

Next month, Heather and I will be presenting at ICTCM in Las Vegas.  We have a new talk about using Excel in pathways courses.  The talk we originally had planned, on using hybrid and online formats with pathways courses, has been put on hold until a later date.  We continue to work on ways to make Math Lit work in alternate formats.  More information will be coming at a later date on that front.  Until then, please come see us at ICTCM if you're coming to the conference.  This is the talk we'll be giving.  It will showcase several new problems and activities.

Beyond Algebra:  Using Excel to Build Understanding in a Pathways Course 

Pathways courses use rich, realistic problems to apply concepts and increase problem solving skills.  Instead of focusing exclusively on algebraic techniques, this session will show ways to use Excel to develop deeper understanding. Sample activities and problems will be shared.
