Disrupting Math Education with Punk Ideology

Disrupting Math Education with Punk Ideology


Sunil Singh


According to Glen Friedman, the essence of punk can be distilled down to this definition: a deep obligation to your innermost feelings. With that in mind, we as honest educators are deeply obliged to fleshing out the truth of learning and teaching mathematics. This truth revolves around the Aristotlean ideas of beauty, truth, justice, play, and love. Mathematics causes humans to flourish—regardless of our background and challenges. Mathematics, like music, deeply connects us.
