Calhoun, Cameron and Carson Present at Mathematics Conference

Aimee Calhoun, Linda Carson, and Mary Cameron presented on Saturday, October 5, at the 2013 New York State Mathematics Association of Two Year Colleges (NYSMATYC) Region 2 Conference held at Tompkins-Cortland Community College. Their presentation was titled "Octa-Tetra Constructions: Celebrating Their Beauty".  The presentation described the Octa-Tetra constructions featured during the Mathematics Department’s celebration of Mathematics Appreciation Month in April 2013. The presentation captured three pieces of the project:

- Inspiration of the Octa-Tetra idea and how the project was launched

- The underlying geometrical and structural beauty of the Octa-Tetra design

- The highlights of the construction phase and photos of the completed projects as displayed in the Monroe Community College Mathematics Learning Center

The three led a hands-on workshop during which participants could construct a hub (star) from the Octa-Tetra templates.
