Mathematics Education Colloquium

Thursday, November 1, 2012, from 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Description

Speaker: Zalman Usinski (University of Chicago)

Title: The Shape of Geometry and the Geometry of Shape

Abstract: In recent decades, the high school geometry curriculum has been influenced by transformations, coordinates, applications, and technology. Each of these influences can change the way one thinks about geometry as a subject to be taught and learned. In particular, these influences affect the shapes that are studied in geometry and so the *shape of geometry* is related to the *geometry of shape*.

Refreshments at 4:00 followed by the talk at 4:30.
