Technology of Mathematics Class

  1. 1. Technology of Mathematics Featuring: NUMB3RS
  2. 2. Course Overview • Technology of Mathematics consists of starting the beginning of the week with a group activity, and/or lab. • Once the class, as a whole, had a full understanding of the upcoming Numb3rs Episode, we would then start the episode and gradually discuss every detail throughout. • As soon as the episode was completed, a small review session would be held right before we took the upcoming quiz on that Numb3rs episode.
  3. 3. Spree • In this episode Don has a problem. Crystal Hoyle and her boyfriend Buck are going on a robbery and killing spree. Their terror is spreading over seven states, and Charlie is called in to help. However, problems between Alan and Charlie may hinder Charlie's concentration. With the twist of one of their own agents being kidnapped, is there any way to get her back?
  4. 4. 2 Daughters • The team frantically searches for Megan after she's been kidnapped by a spree killer. Can she talk Crystal out of this mess even after she hears some surprising information about Crystal? Meanwhile, Charlie tries to figure out his relationship with Amita as Alan makes a decision about his living arrangements.
  5. 5. All’s Fair • In an effort to find the murderer of an Iraqi woman who had been making a documentary that promoted the rights of Muslim women, Don enlists the help of the victim's cousin. Through her cousin, Don uncovers a connection to Saddam Hussein. Back at home, Charlie rekindles a romantic relationship with a former girlfriend when she visits him while on a book signing tour.
  6. 6. 1st Example of Math Used • Distance: In Spree, we found the distance between multiple locations that could possibly fit the given map and given points using Google Maps, MapQuest, etc.
  7. 7. 2nd Example of Math Used • In Scorched, we used systems of equations to determine who exactly fit the fires. Also known as a “fire print”. Systems of equations can be solved by using elimination, substitution and by graphing.
  8. 8. 3rd Example of Math Used • In the episode Double Down, we started with the basics of blackjack and how to actually play. We then experienced how to actually go about “card counting” using probability of the next card popping up in the deck.
  9. 9. Possible Changes • I don’t think any changes are necessary due to the fact that a majority of the time spent is doing hands on things and watching episodes of Numb3rs as a class. Doing things like this makes us learn better.
