Presentation Site
Participants will pour salt on varies shapes and make conjectures regarding the ridge-lines of the piles of salt. Then the conjectures will be verified or rejected based on geometric properties. Using technology, participants will be shown how to construct models of the salt piles using dynamic 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional geometry software.
