Play • 1 hr 22 min

In this episode I get a chance to talk to a former colleague of mine, Nick Valente, about how he has become such an inspirational math teacher in such a short period of time. Nick got is M.A. and B.A. in mathematics from Stony Brook University. Nick has given a TED talk about math, worked at Mathnasium, and has thought more deeply about math education than anyone I know. He gives insights on how we can inspire every child to build a love for mathematics.
