This week the group will learn about power and energy curriculum designed by TCIPG Education. The print materials and interactive activities teach about power and energy in the home and the system that produces and delivers electricity. Interactive activities illustrate challenges, trade-offs and decisions that will come with the modernization of the electric grid.
Jana and George will share the discussions theyre having with the Math 199 students surrounding "The box problem".
The conversations have led them to wonder about which math concepts all students need to know, and, assuming such a concept, how a teacher could get all students to learn it.
