Project Description:

This interdisciplinary project will incorporate the disciplines of mathematics and kinesiology, however the project is specifically housed within the Hope College Department of mathematics. Math majors or minors will write integrated, problem based curriculum designed to teach algebraic concepts through sports. This is part of a larger project Teaching Algebra Through Integration, where these concepts are taught through active participation. The curriculum developed during this this research will be pilot tested in a one week secondary sports camp taught by the student researchers. Students are required to write a paper and disseminate findings at two conferences in Michigan. Math education majors and minors are preferred.
