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.

Maps and Math: Using maps to enrich tasks

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

With the volume, variety, and detail offered in online maps and satellite imagery today, countless inquiry-driven tasks can be developed for all levels of math learning. In this session, we will look at a handful of tasks developed for the high school geometry classroom and one for calculus/precalculus. We will play Thales of Miletus in the modern era, take a long look at Voronoi maps which define regions of closest proximity to individual points, compare zoom on Google Maps to dilation factors in similar polygons, and examine average rate of change by trapping speeders in front of a middle school. The technology resources demoed will include browser-based google maps, websites, and GeoGebra.
