The new Mathematical Modeling and Reasoning course has been a great addition to the Math Department! A pilot course from the state of Ohio, students are engaged in thinking about math concepts and practices daily.
Students apply the mathematics they have learned on collaborative assignments and in individual experiences. They have built marshmallow towers to team build, worked on remodeling the classroom, and applied ratios to bicycle gears with Lego gears.
