Dr. Brandy Wiegers

I grew up in Meridian, Idaho having spent my youth as a dedicated Girl Scout and student. I graduated from University of Idaho (in Moscow, Idaho) with Biological Systems Engineering and Mathematics Degrees. From UI I went to the University of California, Davis (near Sacramento) to complete a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics.

Introduction to Parent Functions

I've seen parent functions introduced in different forms at different high schools and I attempted to incorporate the best of what I'd seen into our coursework by having each group create an introduction to their parent function and then share it with the class. It was a great way for students to learn what was expected of them when they worked together as a group and for students to start understanding what it would be like for us to interact with the group.

Spaghetti Cosine and Sine Curves

We did a great activity to introduce Sine and Cosine from the Unit Circle. This is a standard activity from the high schools my GK12 students work with but none of our undergrads had seen it.

San Joaquin Math Teachers' Circle

On October 22 I presented the 'Slide Rules Rule' lesson at the Math Teachers' Circle at San Joaquin Math Teachers' Circle.  This is a lesson I've been developing over the last several years and I really enjoyed the opportunity to share it with the SJMTC.  They added to the lesson by sharing the time and math with me and then going over the mathematical practices and pedagogical methods I used at the end. That was a really cool experience.

Math Enrichment, Exploration, and Equity

Success at Math

Shall we go for a run, anyone?

If you sat and watched me lecture on running, and you understood everything I said 100%, but you weren't actually actively running, would you feel comfortable going out for a 10 mile run on Saturday?  How about a 3 mile run?
