Geeks Gone Wild!

I had a great time at the Matyconn conference Friday night. We talked math, we geeked out, and ate Greek food.

There were two presentations:
"Functional Approach to Intermediate Algebra" by Marlene Megos Lovanio, who is a Mathematics Consultant for the Connecticut State Department of Education.

"Math in the Movies, Part 2" by Barbara Caserta, Math Professor at Naugatuck Valley Community College

The first provoked a lot of debate. The second was pure fun. Here are a couple of pics. Much to my chagrin, Sandy walked away with the massive chocolate door prize.

It is a great group. Check out their website.
