Event Description: 

How can we use virtual reality (VR)* to learn and explore math in 3D? UNM Department of Mathematics and Statistics Professor Dimiter Vassilev will join us as we demo the interactive VR app Calcflow and discuss how VR can be used as a study and exploration tool for vector calculus and beyond. No experience necessary, all are welcome!

*Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer-generated experience in a 3D simulated environment. Users can interact with 3D videos and applications through the use of a VR headset and hand controls.
