Article Body

Presentation:

  • Dr. Girard has been accepted as a presenter at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Annual Meeting to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah in April, 2008.  Her session entitled, "Becoming More Certain about Conceptual Understanding in Calculus," will be presented and conducted as a gallery workshop to high school and college level mathematics educators. The session will examine how even though calculus concepts are often presented algebraically, when concepts are presented using technological, visual, and hands-on approaches, more meaningful calculus experiences and understandings result.  Conceptual calculus problems from unique multiple perspectives will be explored.
