TITLE Private Universe in Project in Mathematics: Workshop 6: "Possibilities of Real Life Problems" CLIP DESCRIPTION In a voluntary twoweek summer workshop, high school seniors from Kenilworth and New Brunswick work on a reallife problem ("The Catwalk") based on Eduard Muybridge's sequence of 24 photographs of a cat in motion. The question, “How fast is the cat moving in frame 10 and frame 20?,” deals with some of the fundamental ideas leading toward an understanding of calculus. Students find several ways to represent their growing understanding: visual, symbolic, and kinesthetic. OTHER STANDARDS PSSM . Use representations to model and interpret physical, social, and mathematical phenomena (PSSM Representation Standard for Grades 912)
