CS Students Present at Summer Undergraduate Research Program
On Friday, July 29, UNI CS students Beau Brown and Coved Oswald presented their research at the UNI Summer Undergraduate Research Program poster session. Beau and Coved's project was titled "Motion Virtual Manipulatives: Emerging Technology for the Elementary Math Classroom".
Beau's and Coved's work was supervised by UNI CS prof Sarah Diesburg and Math prof Adam Feldhaus. It is part of an ongoing project by Diesburg and Feldhaus that seeks to create new ways for users to interact with whiteboard-like technology and to use this interaction style effectively in the mathematics classroom.
The poster will be on display in the hall near the faculty offices later this summer.
