About This Webinar

Presented by Justin Lanier

"By emphasizing that math is beautiful, in a way you’re not showing enough empathy because you’re excluding the people who don’t get it.” says Steven Strogatz. How do we describe and therefore circumscribe our subject? What positive and evocative language can and do we use to describe math, and what are the effects of doing so? What is the range of experiences and emotions we would like to share with our students? How can we help them to package up and reflect upon these? Come and unpack your own linguistic arsenal and uncover your own notions of what math is—and can be.
