Lessons Learned from Writing Math

Teachers spend hours crafting lesson plans that strike a balance between procedural fluency, conceptual understanding, and application in mathematics. However, when it comes to assessments, they are often collecting very limited information about what their students know. During this presentation we'll learn how an SSU graduate is working with local schools and districts to improve assessment practices by providing students with opportunities to problem solve, reason, and model with mathematics.

Exploring Egyptian Fractions

Ancient Egyptian cultures expressed fractions using (distinct) unit fractions. For example they might have written 2/5 = 1/3 + 1/15. In addition to having practical applications for fair division problems, this interesting way of writing fractions raises many interesting mathematical questions which we will explore:

- How do you write a "regular" fraction as an Egyptian fraction?

- Can you write every fraction as an Egyptian fraction?

- How many unit fractions do you need to express 4/n for an arbitrary whole number n?

Mathematical Relationships in Chemistry

Math is a daily component of every chemist’s existence.  Trends in our field, particularly the emerging roles of big data and data science, make a fundamental understand- ing of math even more important in our careers.  However, for a student of chemistry, math can become a daunting obstacle when trying to connect a mathematical calculation to its chemical meaning.  We will discuss common student stumbling blocks seen across standard chemistry curriculum including mathematical-chemical relationships in reaction kinetics, biological buffers, and the molecular absorption of light. We hope to provide a platform for discussion that can support mathematical understanding for chemistry majors and potential mathematics applications for math students.

Gerrymanderi & Geometry

Following the 2020 United States Census, congressional representation will be re-apportioned among the states. Then congressional districts within each state must be re- drawn. Gerrymandering is the process of manipulating district boundaries to favor a particular outcome of an election. In order to prevent gerrymandering, most states require that electoral districts are compact. However, compactness is rarely defined. We will discuss different strategies used to gerrymander. Then we will examine how mathematics can be used to measure compactness and detect gerrymandering.
