June 30, 2023 In-person teacher workshop

This workshop took place in person on the Page Campus of Coconino County Community College.
Professional development credit certificates, school supplies, and $75 stipends were offered for this workshop.
In addition, we provided breakfast and lunch.
Math Sessions are listed below.

Cube Slicing: What shapes can you find when you slice a cube? This question leads to a number of interesting geometry problems that may be explored in an interesting way. It may be used with a range of students from younger students to practice naming shapes and counting sides, or used with older students learning names of types of triangles and geometric proofs.

Plumbing and Geometry: Build shapes from PVC pipe. Can you tell what a hole is? Can you see how much the shape “curves”? Is there a relation between the number of special pieces used, the number of holes, and the amount it curves? We will investigate these questions.

Math Blocks: If you took all of the answers in the 1 + 1 up to 10 + 10 addition table and added them what would you get? What would you get if you added all of the answers in the 1 x 1 up to 12 x 12 multiplication table? We will use blocks to help investigate these questions.

Instant Insanity: This is an old puzzle that challenges people to put four cubes together in a special way. This session will describe a mathematical tool that makes it much easier to solve.
