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.

The Complexity of Linear Equations

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

One of my favorite classroom activities is an open-ended investigation into the relationship between the algebraic structure of a family of linear equations and the geometric representation of that family in the plane. In the equation , if we define a family of lines by requiring a, b, and c satisfy some constraint ( , for example), what common features do the graphs of these lines share? In the activity, students will generate their own individual conjectures and write their first original proof.
