Math Colloquium: Native American-based Mathematics Materials for Integration Into Undergraduate Courses

  • Darwin 103

Charles P. Funkhouser, PI, and Patrick Weasel Head, Tribal Cultural Liaison, California State University, Fullerton

Our project has developed and researched undergraduate mathematics materials based in the culture and mathematics of Native American Peoples for integration into undergraduate courses. Mathematics topics include probability and statistics, number theory, transformational geometry, calculus, and pre-service elementary and secondary education-relate content. These materials—both paper and electronic—are classroom ready, and are developed and piloted in consultation with Tribes in the Rocky Mountains, the Plains, the Pacific Northwest, and the Southwest. We are currently beginning new culturally-based efforts with other Tribes and mathematicians throughout the U.S., as well as broadening the lesson content domain into all areas of STEM. This work is an NSF DUE-funded project.

People Don’t Get that Worked Up about Racist Indian & Asian Stuff

  • Cooperage 3

An interactive presentation by Dr. Drew Ishii

12-1 pm & 1:30-2:30 pm Cooperage 3

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are often labeled as the “model minority” where they are unfairly generalized and stereotyped, which means that their actual experiences and identity are rendered invisible or invalid. In each session, we will explore the complexities and invisibility that people with AAPI heritage encounter in society.

Dr. Drew Ishii earned his PhD in Math Education at The Ohio State University. A former teacher educator, Drew currently teaches at Sage Hill School, an independent high school. As a diversity practitioner, he has facilitated AAPI affinity groups, spoken at national and international conferences, and trained faculty in diversity issues.

Light refreshments will be served!

For disability accommodation or wheelchair access information, please contact Lauren Morimoto at morimoto@sonoma.edu by 1 May @ noon.

Math Colloquium: Understanding the Dynamics of the Antarctic Ice Sheet

  • Darwin 103

Noemi Petra, University of California, Merced

In the first half of the talk, I will discuss the Applied Mathematics graduate program at the University of California, Merced, namely the requirements, admission process, curriculum, and faculty research interests. In the second half of the talk, I will focus on my research that combines mathematics such as numerical analysis, linear algebra and statistics to get a better understanding of the dynamics of the Antarctic ice sheet by uncovering the hidden world beneath the ice. Satellites have been recording Antarctic ice flow at the surface of the continent for decades. However, to understand the behavior at the top, one has to look at interactions happening deep below where the ice meets the Antarctic continent. In this talk, I will present a modified least squares technique that will allow us to infer unknown parameters in the ice sheet model that characterize the friction between the continental rock and the ice. We hope that this research will help climate scientists to better understand the flow of Antarctic ice from the continent into the sea and its effect on sea level.

Queer Studies Lecture, featuring: Johanna Brieding, "Epitaph for Family"

  • Ives 101

Johanna Breiding's practice stems from photography, considering the mediurn's history, its representational role and limits. Expanding to video and installation, to emphasize voice, movement and experiential pathos, Breiding locates her work within the intersection of analog and digital technologies, the construction of gender and cultural identity, and a critique of heternormative ideologies within the personal and sociaI space. Her recent solo show, Epitaph for Family, addresses notions of queerfamily-making, exploring love, intimacy and loss through the image and connotations of the horizon line and the dinner table. Breiding currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in New Genres at the San Frandsco Art Institute.She is based in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and originally from a small viiIage in Switzerland. The Queer Studies Lecture Series is presented by the Women’s And Gender Studies Department.
