It’s a beautiful day here on the shores of Lake Michigan as the ICTCM gets underway. It’s a busy day and — to my never-ending annoyance — there is no wireless internet in the hotel. So I won’t be blogging/tweeting as much as I’d like. But here’s my schedule for the day.
- 8:30 – Keynote address.
- 9:30 – Exhibits and final preparations for my 11:30 talk.
- 10:30 – “Developing Online Video Lectures for Online and Hybrid Algebra Courses”, talk by Scott Franklin of Natural Blogarithms.
- 11:10 – “Conjecturing with GeoGebra Animations”, talk by Garry Johns and Tom Zerger.
- 11:30 – My talk on using spreadsheets, Winplot, and Wolfram|Alpha|Alpha in a liberal arts calculus class, with my colleague Justin Gash.
- 12:30 – My “solo” talk on teaching MATLAB to a general audience.
- 12:50 – “Programming for Understanding: A Case Study in Linear Algebra”, talk by Daniel Jordan.
- 1:30 – “Over a Decade of of WeBWorK Use in Calculus and Precalculus in a Mathematics Department”, session by Mako Haruta.
- 2:30 – Exhibit time.
- 3:00 – “Student Projects that Assess Mathematical Critical-Thinking Skills”, session by David Graser.
- 5:00 – “Visualizing Mathematics Concepts with User Interfaces in Maple and MATLAB”, session by David Szurley and William Richardson.
But first, breakfast and (especially) coffee.
