SC Associate Professor Ming Ye and recent alum Nathan Crock were selected to contribute video lessons to the CPALMS website. CPALMS is the State of Florida’s official source for Common Core State Standards information and course descriptions. It provides access to thousands of standards-aligned, free, and high-quality educational resources. CPALMS also provides 16 curriculum planning and professional development apps & tools to help educators effectively implement the standards.

In Crock’s Professional Perspectives video clip, he discusses how important matrices are to simulation and problem solving and (2) how he uses the Kinect to map and connect multiple 3D images to fully reconstruct scenes without occlusions. Ye does an Expert Perspectives video, in which he discusses how the fields of hydrogeology, archeology and mathematics can be joined to solve a problem of fluid flow in sand and shells. Ye and his graduate student, Heng Dai, use Darcy’s law and other calculations to determine the length of time needed for water to flow out of a shell ring.

CPALMS was created by the Florida Center for Research in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics at FSU.
