Education Bookcast

Dec 20, 2016

I wanted to share some things I learned from my trip to the US this summer, and what my own experience of running maths circles has been like so far.

This episode includes:

  • Discussion of the Summer Math Circle Institute;
  • Tips and techniques learned from the Institute;
  • My own experiences of running maths circles;
  • Potatoes with added sugar;
  • What you should and shouldn't assume about students;
  • Why Math Circles (sometimes) work;
  • Why Bloom's Taxonomy is upside-down; and
  • The role of the teacher in having a vision for the students in his/her care.

Enjoy the episode.
