Math In Action in Computer Science (2016)

I assisted in the Math in Action in Computer Science (MACS) summer camp of 2014. MACS is a week-long summer camp for middle school students from Cortez Middle School in Cortez Colorado, lead by Shrideep Pallickara Ph.D. In it, we teach a number of mathematical concepts in the context of programming (see the list of modules).

In 2016 I had two roles. First, as a teaching assistant interacting directly with multiple students with a wide variety of skill levels to help them understand the content and accomplish the goals set out in each module. Second, as a teacher developing the content for one of the modules (probabilities) and leading the discussion for that module.

See a video (featuring me!) about the program that year.
