The Mathematics Education seminar is a seminar that will meet every other Friday at 4pm (for fall quarter).
This week (Friday, Oct 21) we will be looking at Lessons 2 & 3 of the 14 lessons developed by the Park City Mathematics Summer 2008 Institute. Currently this set of course materials is being piloted in Mth491/591. The purpose is for students to learn mathematics through working together. The content consists of investigations of the structure of different algebraic systems and geometric curves.
