Math is not just something we do in class; it is one of the methods we can use to solve problems and make our lives easier. Participants will learn the foundational concepts of calculus and the value of this super-powerful tool for tackling tough challenges. Our fun, hands-on activities will help participants develop an understanding of how calculus and other mathematical concepts can solve real problems they face every day and relate to real world engineering and society.
Activity example: Projectile Optimization - Participants will use calculus to explore the math behind projectile motion, and use it to help throw projectiles over a greater distance.
