Samuel Hansen has put together a wonderful podcast series, “Relatively Prime: Stories from the Mathematical Domain”, which offers engaging conversations about mathematics in action.
I am happy to have participated in the episode “1 + 1 = 2″, about the challenges facing mathematics education. The episode can be downloaded here:
Samuel Hansen speaks with John Ewing, president of Math for America, as well as noted math educators Dan Meyer and Keith Devlin. In the segment on Math for America, I speak briefly about the positive impact this organization has had on my career.
I was proud to be able to represent MfA, and I am grateful to Samuel for letting me be a small part of this great project!
