Episode 75 | Dr. Matt Larson President of the NCTM: Part 1

Dr. Matthew Larson is the outgoing President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics joins Chris via Google Hangout to discuss a new book that the Council will be releasing in April at the National Exhibition. In this first part in a two part series we focus upon this book and how it can be viewed as a critical collection of recommendations to initiate conversations around what mathematics should be taught in high schools. What is the purpose of teaching mathematics in the 21st century? What essential concepts ought to be the goals of of a well structured curriculum for all students? We discuss other issues related to the council itself that are of importance to all interested in Mathematics education as well.
