Pi Day at the Lawrence Hall of Science
AC3ME in collaboration with the Bay Area Mathematics Project will kick off the celebration of Pi Day with a presentation by Dan Meyer:
When Will I Use This: The Mathematics of Breaking a
Guinness World Record
Students and people often wonder about the math they learn: "When will I ever use this?" The presenter will describe how the math you learn in school, both the math content as well as the math practices, can help you (yes you!) break a Guinness World Record.
10:00 AM, at the Lawrence Hall of Science
1 Centennial Drive, Berkeley
Free to all teachers, administrators, and MATH lovers, you are invited to join us. Those attending the 10:00 AM presentation will be admitted free to the Lawrence Hall of Science (parking is extra, so plan on carpooling).
Dan's presentation and Q&A will end by noon. Afterwards participants are welcome to stay and visit the many wonderful math and science exhibits at the Lawrence Hall of Science!
Dan Meyer taught high school math to students who didn't like high school math. He has advocated for better math instruction on CNN, Good Morning America, Everyday With Rachael Ray, and TED.com. He earned his doctorate from Stanford University in math education and is the Chief Academic Officer at Desmos where he explores the future of math, technology, and learning. He has worked with teachers internationally and in all fifty United States. He was named one of Tech & Learning's 30 Leaders of the Future.
