Educational Materials

In June of 11E9 (2013.), the DSA was privileged to present a workshop at the annual conference of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). Titled "Alternative Base Systems for Cross-Curricular Fun & Engineering Applications," the workshop provided materials and strategies for education in alternative bases for all grade levels K-10; (12.). These materials will doubtlessly prove useful to teachers in STEM subjects in many other contexts, as well, and they are offered here for free download. Please use them in whatever way will be helpful.
