Math is hard to teach. Statistically, most people never make it past a 4th grade level of understanding. And yet, we are all capable of learning it.
In their pre-spectives, Justin & Amber discuss how math education has changed and why most people believe they are incapable of learning math, despite it being very, very possible. Then Amber speaks with Katrina Hi'ilani from Hawai’i about her work with LAVA (Laboratory for Advanced Visualization & Applications—check them out at www.lavaflow.info), data visualization, VR research, haptic feedback, & her experience as a math teacher before joining the team.
