Math Recess: Teach The Student, Not The Subject

Math Recess: Teach The Student, Not The Subject

In this episode we speak to the Mathematical Jester himself, Sunil Singh (@Mathgarden), about pop up schools, tequila and liquid coronas, and rescuing CDs and VHS tapes from burning buildings. Oh and of course, math anxiety and learning through play.  

“We must teach the student, not the subject.” 

Sunil Singh is the author of Pi of Life: The Hidden Happiness of MathematicsMath Recess: Playful Learning in the Age of Disruption and Chasing Rabbits: A Curious Guide to a Lifetime of Mathematical Wellness.  He is a passionate leader in humanizing mathematics, and his role of Director of the Board at The Human Restoration Project, an endeavour aimed at transforming schools, is supporting that initiative.  Sunil travels all over North America, speaking and providing creative workshops on K to 12 math instruction.  Some of the more interesting places he has presented include The Museum of Mathematics, The Fields Institute at the University of Toronto, and The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.
