Teaching is a revolutionary act.

Family man, author of Confessions of an Anarchist Math Teacher, songwriter, hyperbolic story-teller. I like working with kids who say they hate math and then turning that around anyway I can. I believe that teaching is a revolutionary act, that math class should be a creative, hyper-dimensional space, behaving like a nonlinear dynamical system. Not a test-prep mill.
