This workshop was a parallel option during the annual section meeting of the Louisiana/Mississippi section of the MAA. About 12 individual preregistered and 9 showed up. At least one no-show had a paper scheduled in one of the parallel sessions and hopes to participate in a future workshop.
Since I did not have any experienced helpers, I made the "free time" more of a directed exploring time. I created a new Powerpoint using parts of Mike, Arnie and Vicki's presentation but which also included points from the workshop assessment instrument. FYI, slides are available at http://sections.maa.org/lams/workshop.2012/index.html and the actual powerpoint is available at sections.maa.org/lams/workshop.2012/LA:MS 2012 Section Meeting Workshop.pptx .
