The Wonders of Math Thinking: Humanistic Math Education in Taiwan

Why do we learn math? 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.

Presenters: Yvonne Liu-Constant (Lesley University and Pedagogy of Play, Project Zero), Ying Shi (Founder and President of HEF) and educators at the Humanistic Education Foundation (HEF), Taiwan
