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 DUE0509899 and ESI0227586.
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).
