Route K-12 Podcast: Busting Society’s Big Math Myth

Mar 5, 2024

1:00pm – 2:00pm CT

Why do we believe that some people aren’t “math people” when all of us are born problem solvers? We level crooked tables and split bar tabs without even thinking about it. So this belief that not everyone can do math just doesn’t “add up.” We’re going to shatter that misperception at a live recording of the Route K-12 podcast. We’ll demonstrate that everyone can—and should—excel in math. Expect a dynamic show filled with audience interaction, tangible examples of transformation from classrooms to policymaking, and an electrifying chat with the "Lady Gaga of math education." Don’t miss it!
