Free and open Math Future event

 

Come help the Natural Math crew interview leaders of projects that make mathematical futures happen. Meet other people who care about math ed, listen to a short presentation from the guest speaker, and ask questions about the future of teaching and learning mathematics – happening now!

On Friday March 25, we will talk with Emily Dyke of Math Inspirations. The right math experience is challenging, purposeful, and fun, while meeting your unique, individual goals. Math Inspirations exists to teach students and parents to take ownership of their math experience and empower them with a system that makes their efforts fruitful.

Join us live, or check out recordings of other Math Future events since 2009.
