Mr. Mock Teaches Numb3rs Geometry

Mr. Mock showed students real world application of Geometry using the TV Show “Numb3rs.”  Mr. Mock used a similar format from an earlier post.  In the Parallel and Perpendicular Lines unit, he used the “Uncertantly Principle” activity.  The context of the activity is that Mathematics professor Charlie Eppes is looking at a series of bank robberies to determine who is responsible and where they will strike next.  FBI agent Don Eppes collects data and gives it to his brother to help him make predictions.  Students must answer the questions on the worksheet relating to possible robbery locations and their knowledge of geometry.  Students worked in groups to accomplish this task.  Way to go Mock!
