Game Theory, Fall 2008
This is a standard course in "game theory," designed with the School of Information MSI students as the primary audience. This course is the pre-requisite for several ICD courses. To be well-prepared for management, policy and analysis in the information professions you need to first have a solid grounding in game theory and its applications to problem solving. Thus, the primary objective is to teach you a set of useful theories and how to apply them to solve problems. The emphasis is on method

Triangles from three sides
At least in part, geometry is an exploration of shapes, and the triangle, the simplest of polygons, provides a surprising variety of explorations for the middle school learner. As a geometric figure, it offers opportunities to study fundamental concepts o

Going around in circles!: around and about a geometric figure
Geometry can be an exercise arena for strengthening those logic muscles that middle school students need to flex. When we work with a geometric figureâ€”a circle, for instanceâ€”and apply the ancient tools of compass and straightedge, geometry can become a rich ground for developing design. And a circle has size, so a unit on this topic necessarily brings in the mathematics of its measurement. Circles, then, is a geometric topic that can provide mental challenge, opportunity for artistic develop

Transformations (Translation, Rotation, Enlargement)
Using this activity, students can construct the image of an object on the x and y coordinates (transformation); construct the image of an object under rotation for a selected centre of rotation and angle of rotation; and construct the image of an object under enlargement for a selected centre of enlargement and enlargement factor.

Shapes
This is an activity that shows how changes in the diameter of a circle affect the circle's other attributes; how changes in a rectangle's width and height affect its other qualities; and how changes in a triangle's width and height affect its other attributes.This object is also designed for presentation via Windows-based hand-held devices.

Measuring the Waters
Students will discuss and understand measurement of a single event and measurement over time. After listening to excerpts from an oral history with Earl Cavenaugh, a survivor of Hurricane Floyd, students will understand how people devised ways of keeping measurements during that flood and earlier floods.
