Thurs Oct 19 – Math Stories

As you work on your projects today, focus on this: What’s your math story? Remember that “math” doesn’t necessarily mean an equation or a calculation; it might be a description of the geometric properties of a mathematical object, why or how it is studied, what is illustrated by your 3D printed version of the object, or an interesting progression of ideas.

As you work on the math section for your project — which will also be the main part of your presentation next week — think about what you want the class to learn. What three mathematical things do you hope they will take away from your presentation? What would you put on a quiz about your project? On top of all that, make sure that you tell an interesting mathematical story, illustrated by your 3D printed object.
