Presentation Description

The SMC recently supported my attendance at an American Maths Conference and this workshop will share some of the experiences and activities that I gained: They will include ways to teach calculus concepts to pre-Higher students, listening to the 'tune' of any function using Geometer's Sketchpad, optimisation problems and algebra activities using TI-Nspire. Participants can use all of these activities with their own SG, Int2, H and AH students.
