Do you ever worry that your students’ eyes will glaze over the second you show them a formula? Have you worried that you’ll lose your audience when you show them your notation? In this CTL discussion, we will talk about the levers of control you have over your notation. We will discuss what is going on in someone’s head when they try to read a formula. Then, we will look at inspiring examples of where notation is made approachable with thoughtful and innovative visual designs. Together, we will make sense of what tools are available to you to make your own kinds of notation easy to digest.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Computer & Information Science department, and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
