Welcome to the 30th Anja S. Greer Conference on Mathematics, Science and Technology being held June 22 - June 27, 2014 at Phillips Exeter Academy. If this is your first time to the conference, use our interactive map to get to know the campus. Registration is held at the Phelps Academy Center and classes are primarily in the Phelps Science Center or the Academy Center.  You can find your dorm by using the buiding filters.  Your conference "Welcome Letter" includes your dorm assignment.  Please note on the map, the dorms are listed as male or female.  The gender assignment of the dorms may change the week of the conference based on our needs.

In my algebra and precalculus classes I help students learn to apply the mathematics they study and learn to use technology appropriately. Since parents often purchase calculators, or iPads, or laptops to help their students with schoolwork, I like to give the parents the opportunity to see one example of how the students use technology in math. To accomplish this, I assign a "parent project" in which the student teaches one of his or her parents (or another adult relative if that is more appropriate) one of the applied projects we have done during the course. In this session, I will describe the components of the parent project, suggest some problems that students have used with their parents in the past, and share student and parent reactions to the activity.
