The Wonders of Math Thinking: Humanistic Math Education in Taiwan

This workshop invites you to imagine: What if the true purpose of math education is not to prepare students for STEM careers but to experience the beauty, the wonder, and the power of math as a process of self-discovery? The Wonders of Math Thinking is a creative math curriculum and professional development program aimed at being a change agent of education in Taiwan. Please join us in exploring the curriculum materials, experiencing the thinking process, and discussing videos of children learning math playfully! Register now.
