Discover how math skills, ideas and applications are an essential part of the science, technology and engineering that underpins our modern society – from helping to keep animals out of trash, to creating better and more efficient places to live, to accelerating our communication networks, to stopping global disease pandemics – and build the knowledge, experience and confidence to use math effectively in your daily life.
Explore the major domains of math: geometry and measurement, algebra, numbers, and statistics and probability, and apply them to important real-world phenomena, like storms or earthquakes, as well as relevant challenges and opportunities, like creating better infrastructure or developing a successful business plan.
Through immersive, hands-on learning experiences, supported by Math-Mapper, a revolutionary, learner-centered math learning tool developed by researchers at North Carolina State University, gain and apply foundational math skills. Through these activities grow your critical and design thinking skills, and develop your data analysis and modeling skills.
Along the way, meet STEM role models from entrepreneurs, to researchers, to community workers who apply math daily in their work, and participate virtually in some of their projects. Get ready to go BIG with your math.
Geometry: Here's Looking at Euclid
The Geometry unit of JASON’s ARGO Math is titled “Here’s Looking at Euclid” to honor the Greek scholar and the mathematics he developed. In Greek, “geometry” means “to measure earth.” Euclidean geometry is the study of plane (two-dimensional) and solid (three-dimensional) figures. In this unit, you’ll explore real-world connections between perimeter, area, and volume; lines, angles, and polygons; and coordinate geometry and the Pythagorean theorem.
Algebra: A Fine Line
Welcome to “A Fine Line” – the first unit of ARGO Algebra! In this learning experience you will explore how linear relationships – expressions, equations and inequalities – are used to solve exciting and important real-world challenges, from designing an amusement park to developing a business plan. So, be creative and get entrepreneurial with your Algebra through a series of Quests.
DISCLAIMER: This is a BETA version of “A Fine Line”. It is under active development. We look forward to receiving feedback from you and our innovation partners. The full version of the unit will be launched Winter 2019.
