CSI at ISU: Math, stats and computer science applications to solve forensic science questions

**Speakers** *AC*
## Alicia Carriquiry

CSAFE is a federally funded center with a mission to develop statistical and computational methods to address forensic questions. The focus is on pattern evidence (fingerprints, shoeprints, firearms, handwriting and blood spatter) and digital evidence. Evaluating this type of evidence is challenging, because it typically involves quantifying the similarity between images, and the standard statistical methods fall short. We rely on learning algorithms and computational methods and produce solutions that both scientifically solid and practical. We work on interesting problems and would like to collaborate with Iowa teachers in the development of educational materials. The goal is to provide teachers with an opportunity to broaden their knowledge in data science, statistics and computational methods and to encourage their students to pursue careers in STEM, including forensic science.

Introduction to the Desmos Graphing Calculator

In this session participants will learn about the free Desmos online graphing calculator. The presenter will share how the Desmos calculators can be used for both teacher modeling and student problem-solving. Use movable points, dynamic sliders, quick regression, geometry constructions, and more to help your students make sense of math. Bring a tablet or laptop to maximize your participation.
