This episode on why kids hate math and what we can do about it features a conversation with John Bianchette of Mathnasium from January 2020 with a recent additional talk to reflect the radical changes that have taken place since then. In the Trenches I trace my journey from hating math as a student and defining myself as “I’m not a math person” in adulthood to finally realizing that I actually enjoy math because of the math teachers at Arete Preparatory Academy. I’ll share some of their tips and tools that transform students, too. Also, The 5-Minute Game Show features a musical parody game you won’t want to miss.
