ADNU mathematics summer 2017 seminar-workshops

The Department of Mathematics of the Ateneo de Naga University (ADNU) is organizing a series of seminar-workshops to be held on June 1, 2, and 3, 2017 at the Instructional Media Center of the ADNU main campus (at Bagumbayan Sur, Naga City). The resource speaker for all three seminar-workshops is Dr. Ian June L. Garces of Ateneo de Manila University.

The Seminar-Workshop on Formative Assessment and the Teaching of Math on June 1, 2017 (Thursday) has private and public high school (and possibly elementary) math teachers as the target audience.

The Coaches’ Training in Math Competitions on June 2, 2017 (Friday) has private and public high school math coaches as the target audience.

The Seminar-Workshop on Problem Solving and Mathematical Investigation on June 3, 2017 (Saturday) has high school and college math teachers and graduate students in math as the target audience.

The Document Preparation System Called LaTeX

I just gave a seminar-workshop to the faculty of the Mathematics Cluster of the Department of Mathematics and Natural Science.  It’s a very short introduction to LaTeX.  (A copy of the slides is attached to this blog entry.)  The seminar-workshop was funded by the University Research Council.

Statistical Tools for Literature and Language Studies

Here are the slides for a seminar-workshop on statistics that I’m giving tomorrow to the faculty members of the Department of Literature and Language Studies, College of Arts and Sciences, Ateneo de Naga University.

In my experience, statistics is best learned using examples from one’s field of study. Admittedly, the slides do not contain as much information as I would like to teach. Unfortunately, as the seminar-workshop is limited to one day only, I am forced to limit my selection of topics to those which I think are most useful to the participants in general.

I hope that the participants will use the understanding and the skills that they learned in this seminar-workshop to better appreciate the research papers that they read and to better describe the results of their own research.
