Messing Around in GeoGebra

August 16, 2016

This blog has basically become a last-minute repository for all my talks. I’m not happy about that; I’m going to start blogging for real again, but in the meantime, here’s another talk for the repository.

I’m speaking tomorrow (today?) at the Fourth Annual Southern Connecticut GeoGebra Conference. This is an exciting talk for me for a lot of reasons. It’s inspired by a blog post I wrote back in February (back when I still wrote blog posts,) and it will be part of the conference proceedings. Most importantly though, I gave a talk at last year’s conference, which set in motion several exciting collaborations with some really wonderful people. Wow, I cannot believe it’s only been a year! It feels like a decades. In any case, here are my slides. I hope the coming decade year can be every bit as meangingful as the last one.

MAA Metro NYC Talk

April 27, 2016

Jared Warner and I will be giving another talk this Sunday about our gentrification-themed board game. If you’re going to be around at the MAA Metropolitan New York Section Meeting, come find us in room E105 at 3:35pm. As usual, the slides are available below.

Also, many people have asked us where they can get a copy of the game. We’re working on making it available as a free print-and-play through this website. Professionally printed copies will also be available from theGameCrafter.com for a little under $50 a piece. We’re still working out the details though. We’re going to set the price on Game Crafter so that we have a $0 markup, meaning any money made off the game will go to Game Crafter for their services and not Jared or I. The intention is to release the game under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommerical license so that others can roll their own mods. For example, I’d love to see alternate boards show up for other U.S. cities, new cards, and other creative spins on the rules. I will post more details here on the blog when we’re ready to start distributing the game.
