This lecture was filmed at the 2017 National Math Festival in Washington, D.C. and features Dr. Maria Droujkova of Natural Math.
When it comes to children learning mathematics, what are your worries and dreams? What is it really all about? How can your young child play with powerful math such as integrals, fractals, and infinity—and why do so? How can grown-ups help, if they carry their own math scars? Come for a frank conversation about math making your children strong, creative, and caring. Learn what it takes for children to make their own beautiful, meaningful, and joyful mathematics.
