I want to open parents' eyes to math beyond just answer-getting. I want them to learn to ask questions, and to make sense of math. How do I become invisible as the leader? How do I work on my ability to not give too much away, but to trust kids to work it out? [

I work for a science center, with kids from different places, different countries, and different schools. How do we connect with other such organizations and people working in them? [

When I started teaching after working as a software developer, I found not just the utilitarian aspects of math, but its beauty, and the joy of working on challenging problems. How can we explore together with children? [1]:
