Your makerspace is an untapped resource to teach math differently. 3D prints, coding, and other hands-on exploration have very natural applications to mathematics visualization and experimentation. However, it takes some thought and exploration to create teaching tools that exploit these technologies. Join the authors of the books Make:Geometry and the upcoming Make:Calculus to see how to teach these subjects with innovative hands-on projects. Our interactive workshop will introduce the techniques used in our books and representative models and projects.

Materials Needed: Participants should download the free, open-source program OpenSCAD (available at OpenSCAD.org) ahead of time. Participants may also want to separately purchase the MAKE: Geometry and/or the soon-to-be-released MAKE:Calculus books.
