Geometry Across the Curriculum
Workshop with Tom Banchoff
(Download Flyer)

The Geometry workshop with Tom Banchoff* took place on Saturday, March 25, 2006, at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education. The workshop was organized and conducted by CPTM faculty and graduate students from Mathematics and Mathematics Education at UGA and supported by NSF under Grants DUE-0509899 and ESI-0227586.

Over 120 mathematics educators (high school teachers, curriculum supervisors, college faculty, graduate students) from Georgia participated in the workshop. The program (see details below) included plenary and breakout sessions as well opportunities for informal discussions during the breaks and lunch.

*During Spring 2006, Tom Banchoff, professor of mathematics at Brown University, was visiting professor in Mathematics and Mathematics Education at UGA and taught MATH 2500 (Multivariable Calculus) and MATH 5210/7210 (Foundations of Geometry II).
