Salon Series #1: The Mathematician's Lament

  • Noe Valley Library Meeting Room (map)

The Mathematician's Lament
Many feel that math is being taught in a way which drains it of the natural awe, curiosity, and power of the subject. In Paul Lockhart's famous essay, "The Mathematician's Lament," he argues that math is closer to an art and should be taught as such. Why do we really study math?

This Salon event will be hosted at the Noe Valley Library's Meeting Room. We'll provide light food. Because of the small-group nature of these conversations, we have a limited number of spots available, and ask that you reserve a seat if interested, and please open the seat if you become unavailable to attend. We look forward to a rich conversation!

About Millennium School's Salon Series
Millennium School's Salons are conversations about essential topics in education. In each conversation, a small group of 10-20 people dives into a key topic around what matters most in adolescent education, what school could ideally be, and how to make it happen. We aim to draw a range of people with important perspectives: parents, students, educators, scientists, researchers and others. No expertise in the topic is required; an open and curious mind is all we ask!
