Room 119 at 3:30
Speaker: Sergei Abramovich
This presentation will reflect on a number of mathematics education courses taught by the author to prospective K-12 teachers. It will highlight the potential of technology-enhanced educational contexts in discovering new mathematical knowledge by revisiting familiar concepts and models within the framework of “hidden mathematics curriculum.” Situated addition, unit fractions, and Fibonacci numbers will motivate the presentation leading to a mathematical frontier.
