Teaching & Learning Math with 3D Printing

September 19, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Location: Howell Meeting Room (Landis Academic Center – 2nd Floor)


Workshop provided by Wilson Library Makerspace and
Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, Nonscriptum LLC



Make: Geometry, Make:Trigonometry, and Make: Calculus books

These works teach the project first and introduce algebra afterteaching the concepts with hands-on models, projects withcommon objects, and historical context. The design of thesemodels also makes them ideal for those who learn differently.


OpenSCAD: Hands on tutorial 

OpenSCAD is an open source code-based CAD program used to create the models in all three books. The models are designed to be downloaded from open-source repositories tied to each book. 

Participants who want to follow along should download and install OpenSCAD ahead of time from openscad.org/downloads, available for Mac/Windows/Linux.
