Title: Teaching Precalculus in Hawaii

Abstract: Most students enjoy learning about applications of math concepts. In
this talk, we will show how Precalculus concepts can motivate students
in the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa. Some interesting and recreational
use of certain concepts will be explored. At the end, we will cover
other ideas such as how to develop and maintain an effective culture of
assessment that may be used for future improvement and more.
