On Thursday, May 19, at Torrey Pines High School 120 students from Abby Brown’s Calculus II, Calculus II, Introduction to Linear Algebra, and Advanced Topics in Mathematics II classes shared projects with family, friends, and community members at the annual TPHS Advanced Math Open House. Topics ranged from pure mathematics to biology, chemistry, physics, economics, art, and gaming. Students selected their own project ideas and many chose to find real world applications of the math they have been studying. The event is a culmination of the work they have done all year in these classes that are part of a special program with San Diego State University. University professors also attended the event and talked to students about their work. The students take these classes at Torrey Pines but receive college credits through SDSU.

“Each year my students have better, more creative projects for the open house. This year had fantastic energy and our highest attendance ever. I believe we had close to 400 people visit with the students and enjoy their projects. This event is always a highlight of my year and it gives the students a chance to celebrate what they are learning in a non-competitive way,” says Brown, the students’ math teacher.
