Unlocking Minds: The Power of Creative Reasoning in Math Education

Air Date: June 4, 2024

Nigel Nisbet, VP of Content Creation at MIND Education joins LeiLani to discuss creative reasoning in the process of learning math. Imagine a mind being able to internally visualize math in a similar way to any other language – such as the mental image picture one gets of a tall tree in all it’s dimension on a landscape and its color and movement in the wind. Such a mind exploring math would have achieved much more than memorizing addition and subtraction tables, for example. This evolution of math learning is particularly important for educators to understand and for learners to have facilitated to arrive at the type of learning that uses curiosity over anxiety, and imagination over arduous mechanics. Nigel and LeiLani elaborate on what’s changed about the world that makes this podcast a must view or listen.
