Registration is now open for a 4-day joint workshop combining Raising Calculus to the Surface and The Vector Calculus Bridge Project. Contingent upon NSF funding, the workshop will be held June 18-21 at Concordia University in Irvine, California. The curriculum for Raising Calculus and The Vector Calculus Bridge Project nicely complement and support one another: They both approach multivariable/vector calculus from a geometric perspective and utilize group-based activities to provide opportunities for students to discover and explore underlying mathematical concepts.
Workshop Dates: Tuesday, June 18th (8:30am - 4:30pm), Wednesday, June 19th (8:30am - 4:30pm), Thursday, June 20th (8:30am - 4:30pm), Friday, June 21st (8:30am - 4:30pm)
Workshop Leaders: Aaron Wangberg (Winona State University), Melinda Schulteis (Concordia University - Irvine), Tevian Dray (Oregon State University), and Corinne Manogue (Oregon State University)
Anticipated NSF Support
If funded by the NSF, the workshop will be able to provide 20 to 24 participants with support for local expenses, a portion of travel expenses, and instructors materials including a classroom kit of 4, 8, or 12 surfaces. We anticipate hearing from the NSF on or around Math 15th. Register now, but wait to make travel accommodations until we hear about NSF support. [ If we don't get funding, we can't do the workshop or pay any expenses. ]
