This is a great resource: thousands of free video lectures on a variety of topics from CosmoLearning.
There are over a thousand videos on mathematics, including full courses in Single-Variable Calculus, Vector Calculus, Differential Equations, Trigonometry, Statistics, and the History of Mathematics.
There are also standalone videos on a wide variety of topics like Topology, Probability, and Algebra.
In addition to Mathematics, there are thousands of other videos ranging from Anthropology to Veterinary Medicine!
I greatly enjoyed being a part of Shecky Rieman’s interview series at Math-Frolic!
Shecky asked a number of thoughtful questions which were fun for me to ponder and respond to, including questions about my take on the “Is Algebra Necessary?” debate and my series of posts on the quality of New York State Regents exams.
There series also includes interviews with other interesting figures in math and math education, like James Grime, John Golden, and Sol Lederman.
Thanks to Shecky for putting together such a nice series!
I will be running workshops for students at the upcoming TIME 2000 conference at Queens College.
This conference showcases the TIME 2000 program at Queen’s College, which supports undergraduate students in studying mathematics and math education. Renowned math educator Dan Meyer will be giving the keynote address.
The conference is Friday, November 16th, and is open to high school students who are considering mathematics education as a possible career.
This is a great collection of fun, rich, and challenging math and physics problems from the Physics Department at Harvard:
There are 90 problems here, all of which were ”Problems of the Week.”
Along with some classics like The Counterfeit Coin, The Game Show, and Letters and Envelopes, there are some really interesting and creative problems like finding the moment of inertia of a fractal and measuring the time between simultaneous claps. Solutions to the problems are all available on the website, as well.
It was an honor to contribute a guest post to Moebius Noodles, a wonderful project focused on creating resources that provide rich mathematical experiences for young children.
After seeing my TED Talk on Creativity and Mathematics, Maria Droujkova, one of the authors of Moebius Noodles, contacted me and asked if I would put together a piece about how I use weaving to explore mathematical ideas.
My piece is titled “Weaving Your Way Through Mathematics,” and can be found on the Moebius Noodles website.
More resources on mathematics and weaving can be found here.
