Biography

This year, my students and I are exploring the real life applications of Algebra 2, and the physics behind it using the Robots Lab Math Ball. The Math Ball brings to life advanced-level mathematics, such as quadratic functions and curve fitting, while delivering science lessons on vectors, Newtons’s 3 laws and energy. Students will visit the gymnasium for math class and perform different actions with the ball while sensors track everything from trajectory to the forces acting on the ball.
