Penn State Beaver will host free Mathematica seminar

11/11/2013 —

Teachers from elementary through college level are invited to attend a free seminar, “Mathematica:  A Transformation in Mathematics Education,” 8 to 9 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 13, in room 16 in the Penn State Beaver Student Union Building.

Andy Dorsett, seminar presenter, works with Pennsylvania schools to help current users make the most of Mathematica software in courses and research. In addition, he assists educators who do not use Mathematica now, but who plan to integrate it into courses. Dorsett’s background is math education, and the presentation will include a variety of practical ways to make technology effective in today’s classrooms.

Dorsett is part of Wolfram Research, founded by Conrad Wolfram, which features the mathematical lab behind the cutting-edge knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha. As part of Wolfram’s approach, Dorsett will show how teachers and students can achieve more in math and science through software.

The event is hosted by Abhijit Dutt, instructor in information sciences and technology at Beaver campus, and Ellen Cavanaugh from Beaver County STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
Participants are asked to park in Lot F behind the Student Union Building.
