Christin Smith currently learns about teaching, math, and art in Berea, Kentucky. You can find her on Twitter at @thechristin.
In this talk, Christin considers the elements of viral math (curiosity & controversy) that seem to transcend the #IHateMath/"I am not a math person" trauma that pervades the hearts and minds of so many of our students, colleagues, family and friends.
Christin's Call to Action:
- What can we learn from viral math? Can we use viral math lessons to change math mindsets?
- How do you respond to casual math loathing?
