Physics in the Mathematics Curriculum Summary
Tuesday, July 16, 2002
Shelly Berman from Math Forum spent 1 hour demonstrating how Fathom can be used to analyze the data we have been collecting in our lab activities. Nick invited him to come at breakfast this morning. We used the data collected in the blow gun activity as an example. In result of this demonstration, we are modifying at least the blow gun activity to analyze their collected data using Fathom rather than TI-83 calculator. This strengthens the mathematics of this activity substantially.
Cato and Brian have sent drafts (final?) of the their activities to Suzanne asking her if file transfers went okay. These activities should be just about ready to post as part of our product as a working group.
