In this episode, I talk to Rebecca Borowski, an Assistant Professor of math education at Western Washington University who I met when we were both PhD students at Indiana University. The episode is loaded with lots of great advice on being the best teacher you can be, how Rebecca found joy in the learning of mathematics, and so much more!

The math in this episode is understanding that it’s about so much more than calculations, the benefits of adults learning in base 5 or 12, and the complications behind missing the week factoring was taught in school! The other things are the power of wanting to know more, surrounding yourself with those who support students and you, and the benefits of believing in your students.

Hexagon Task (and some other cool tasks too!)
