1001 Mathematical Circles: Families and Communities Making Math Their Own with Dr. Maria Droujkova
When it comes to mathematics and children, what are your dreams? Many parents and teachers we have asked dream about children enjoying the beauty of mathematics, using mathematics to solve their own and the humanity’s problems, and sharing fun mathematics with friends. Many worry about math anxiety, math tests making their kids sick, or social injustice in the access to math power. The latest news about growing grassroots movements will help you, your families, and your communities to deal with mathematical worries, and to make mathematical dreams come true.
