Invited Talks

Annalisa Crannell

Franklin & Marshall College

In the Shadow of Desargues

Those of us who teach projective geometry often nod to perspective art as the spark from which projective geometry caught fire and grew. This talk looks directly at projective geometry as a tool to illuminate the workings of perspective artists. We will particularly shine the light on Desargues' triangle theorem (which says that any pair of triangles that is perspective from a point is perspective from a line), together with an even simpler theorem (you have to see it to believe it!). Given any convoluted, complicated polygonal object, these theorems allow us to draw that object together with something that is related to it--- its shadow, reflection, or other rigid symmetries---and we'll show how this works. (If you enjoy doodling or sketching, bring your pencil, a good eraser, and a straightedge.)

 

Kay Roebuck and Sheryl Stump

Ball State University

The Common Core and its Fate in Indiana

A history of the design and implementation of mathematics standards including the Common Core State Standards. Discussion about the fate and legacy of the Common Core in Indiana and the implications for reform in mathematics education. 

 

Indiana Project NExT Panel Session:

Effectively Incorporating Technology in the Classroom

Panelists

Craig Cullen, Illinois State University
Josh Holden, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Gerard Venema, Calvin College

Moderator: Stacy Hoehn, Franklin College

In this panel, we will discuss strategies for using technology within the classroom to
aid student learning. Our panelists will first each give an overview of their ideas about
how to incorporate software and other technologies into the classroom, and then there
will be time for Q&A from the audience.
