Just a note: I’ll be attending the International Conference on Technology in Collegiate Mathematics (ICTCM) in Chicago next week, March 12–14. I’ll be giving two short talks there:
- “Integrating spreadsheets, visualization tools, and computational knowledge engines in a liberal arts calculus course”, on Friday, March 12 at 11:30 AM. This talk is about how we use these kinds of technologies in our Calculus courses specifically to support the liberal arts mission of the college. I’ll be joined in this talk by my colleague, Justin Gash.
- “Teaching MATLAB to a non-canonical audience”, on Friday, March 12 at 12:30 PM. This is on, you guessed it, the pedagogical and design issues behind the MATLAB course for a general audience which I have blogged about a lot here lately.
I’m also going to be participating in the Geogebra workshop on Saturday in preparation for my junior/senior-level geometry course this fall.
I hope to do a lot of conference-blogging in the meanwhile, and I promise not to use the entire time as a pretext for bashing the TI N-Spire like I did back in 2008. If you’re coming too, let me know.
