Who's Mr. R?
Just a regular math teacher.
But where are you from?
I graduated with a degree in Maths Education. Originally from Queens and eventually settled here in Brooklyn.
How do you teach?
I strive for my teaching to be jovial and light: with the heft and weight of math I try to bring wonder to students and want them to keep questioning. I want my classroom and students to be filled with laughter and joy for all my students.
Interesting Topic for February
This year, in celebration of Lunar New Years, a lesson on the mathematics of the Chinese throughout various dynasties in history and how math was created with less sophisticated tools than what we have in the modern era will be taught.
This will give a more holistic view of mathematics throughout history and shake the ingrained thinking of a where can can originate from and teaching a more nuanced mathematical world view.
