EMCC Student Conference: The Green Revolution
Since the Math Awareness Month theme fit right into the district-wide Student Conference held at EMCC (on the Green Revolution this year), I hosted a Math Zone with student projects and a station where people could calculate their carbon footprint. Another faculty member, Holly, brought out her origami created by recycled math quizzes and worksheets as well.
It was quite a warm day, and of course our zone was pretty much directly in the sun the whole time I was out there. Luckily I had a few colleagues and students come by to keep me company! I was interviewed by a reporter during the conference as well (and ended up being quoted in the article she wrote on the conference!)
