Title:"When Will I Ever Use This?"
Seminar:Teaching Mathematics Discussion Group Seminar
Speaker:Discussion Attendees, Penn State
Abstract:
This week, we'll attempt to tackle the age-old question of why we teach mathematics that is not "useful" for students. How should we respond to these questions when they are asked? Is the "usefulness" of mathematics important? Join us for a lively discussion!
