New Orleans bound - AMATYC 2015

Next week is the AMATYC conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. I'll be speaking with Heather Foes on using spreadsheets in a pathways class.  Here is the information. I hope to see you there!

Using Excel to Build Understanding in a Pathways Course                              

Pathways courses use rich, realistic problems as opportunities to apply concepts and improve problem-solving skills. Instead of focusing exclusively on algebraic techniques, Excel spreadsheets can be used to develop deeper understanding and highlight alternate perspectives. Sample activities and problems for this approach will be shared in the session.
