The Mathematics Cross-Over

The traditional classroom involving the presentation of a singular subject is slowly going by the way side.  Modern classrooms will search for a perspective that allows cross-disciplinary learning in order to further engage students in what many consider more traditional topics.  The fascinating  world of Mathematics presents an extraordinary avenue to explore this topic.  This presentation will look at how the perceived polar opposite fields of sports and mathematics can be intertwined to provide a more cross-disciplined approach to learning.  

The goal of the session is to present an interactive approach to utilizing the physically stimulating side of sports in order to aid in the presentation and learning of  traditional concepts in mathematics.  The attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop in order to participate fully in the session.  The attendees will be capturing their own data and utilizing the data-set in an effective way to present mathematics concepts.  Once complete, attendees will have exposure to ideas on how to present mathematics from an unique and cross-discipline perspective.
