We will talk about how creative and fun mathematics truly is. And how hard it is to teach it the right way. Many of us have been excluded from this source of joy and beauty by bad teachers and bad schools. We hope to be able to rekindle some of it.
In this session, we will also play a few favorite mathematical puzzles/games.
To get a flavor, read this famous short essay about a math teacher: https://www.maa.org/external_archive/devlin/LockhartsLament.pdf
