This seminar offers a guide for thinking brilliantly and creatively in classroom mathematics. It is designed for K-12 educators and all those who seek joyful mathematics-doing.
Our complex society demands of its next generation not only mastery of quantitative skills but also the confidence to ask new questions, explore, wonder, flail, persevere, innovate, and succeed. Let’s not only send humans to Mars. Let’s teach our next generation to solve problems and get those humans back if something goes wrong!
James will explore five natural principles of mathematical thinking. We will have fun seeing how school mathematical content is the vehicle for teaching ingenuity and math joy.
All are so welcome to attend!
