Numerical and geometrical fallacies

Friday, September 30, 2016, 5:00pm
Ungar Building Room 402


Abstract:

One of the pedagogical tools that can be used for teaching mathematics are the mathematical fallacies. We often extrapolate properties to objects that don't have the desired property or consider a picture of a geometrical problem as the only possible case. In this talk, we will discuss some numerical and geometrical fallacies and how to use them to teach fundamental concepts in algebra, analysis and geometry.
