About The Making Math Moments That Matter Podcast
Make Math Moments is on a mission to provide an opportunity for all mathematics educators around the world to access professional learning opportunities that will elevate their teaching practice and promote an equitable learning experience for all students. We strive to provide all educators with the opportunity to spark their learning through the Making Math Moments That Matter Podcast as a means to inspire the exploration of new pedagogical practices and to seek out opportunities to deepen their own mathematical content knowledge.
The goal of the podcast is to help more mathematics educators to create a classroom culture where students don’t want to stop exploring mathematics when the bell rings by interviewing featured guests such as Jo Boaler, Peter Liljedahl, Sunil Singh, Dan Meyer, Nicki Newton, John Hattie, inviting mathematics teachers on to the show to engage in “Mentoring Moment” episodes where we coach them through a current math classroom struggle, or to simply riff on a specific big idea, tool or strategy for simply.
We strive to positively impact the K-12 mathematical experience for over 1 million students by helping mathematics teachers and mathematics district leaders to strengthen the six (6) key parts of an effective mathematics program.
