A huge milestone in the Yay Math journey, a first appearance on TEDx! Here the talk is about how math anxiety is a preventer of success at school, and eventually, with people's career aspirations. Yay Math directly alleviates that anxiety, through humanizing the learning experience within the live classroom.

Yay Math on How To Become a Professor

LA Talk Radio interview


What a conversation! Thank you Dr. Cheryl Lubin, host of In Our Times, for such a valuable and meaningful time together. We cover a lot, including teaching as performance, conquering self-defeat, and my comments on the idea of "not being a math person." Let your next commute include a dose of inspiration!

Parenting Then... & Now


Many parents and teachers can't help but compare what it was like "back then" to the way things are now. So you could imagine my ultimate glee when I learned that a podcast exists on this very topic. I had the good fortune to be interviewed on this episode, and topics ranged from what it was like as a child vs. now, math learning for boys vs. girls, and the pixelated elephant in the room: how imbalanced use of technology undermines our kids’ ability to connect to others and lead fulfilling lives.

She takes a look into new endeavors too, like our debut book, and StatsCenter.

TEDx talk on personal meaning

TEDx, Personal Meaning


In our second TEDx appearance themed "Igniting your future," we discuss the importance of creating a personal sense of meaning in our lives. Sometimes we don't establish our life's purpose because of the many forces out there which hijack our ability to make personal decisions. How to fix that phenomenon is discussed here, at TEDx SDSU. Click to see the talk.


Room to Grow podcast


Hosted by stellar veteran teachers who are also kind-of-a-big-deal leaders at Texas Instruments, I was invited to be their first-ever guest on their podcast, Room to Grow. If you're interested in how to make math learning come alive for students, and hearing some funny stories that'll get you thinking along the way, then tune in. I know you'll like it. It's my best interview thus far. Click to hear the interview.
