The Math Dude makes understanding math easier and more fun than you ever thought possible. Host Dr. Jason Marshall provides clear explanations of math terms and principles, and his simple tricks for solving basic algebra problems will have even the most mathphobic looking forward to working out whatever math problem comes their way. If you're getting ready to take the SAT, GRE, or any of the other standardized tests; or if you're going back to school and need to brush up on the basics, Math Dude's Quick and Dirty Tips to Make Math Easier will strengthen your fundamental skills and help you understand the language of math. And if you just want to calculate the tip without using your iPhone and impress all your friends, his tips and tricks are for you too.
Welcome to Math Mutation, a podcast for people of all ages where we discuss fun, interesting, or just plain wierd corners of mathematics that you would not have heard in school.(Feedback email firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Other Half is an exploration of the the other half of bunch of things. First, Anna and Annie want to take you on a tour of the other half of math — the fun half you might be missing when you learn math in school, the half that helps you makes sense of your own life. Undoubtedly you’ve struggled with math at some point and asked yourself, “what would I ever use this for?” They hope to give you some compelling and unexpected answers to that question. And on the flip side of that equation, they want to explore the other half of life. That is, the half of day to day social scenarios that can be better understood by thinking about them like a mathematician. Lastly, Anna and Annie — as women of science — represent the other half of people. More than half of the humans on earth are female, but that parity isn’t reflected in the world of math and science. They hope to lend some much needed lady voices to the conversation. So come, and take a walk with them, on the quantitative side of life.
Interviews with mathematics education researchers about recent studies. Hosted by Samuel Otten, University of Missouri. www.mathedpodcast.com Produced by Fibre Studios
We interview experts and researchers in type theory, from the perspectives of programming, mathematics, and philosophy.
The Mathematical Moments program promotes appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human culture. Hear people talk about how they use mathematics in various applications from improving film animation to analyzing voting strategies.

In The Road Trip, Anna and Annie look into the math that undergirds the great American summertime tradition of rolling down the windows, turning up the stereo, and touring the countryside by automobile. Randy Olson has made the planning part easy by computing the optimal road trip across the U.S. His work to minimize the miles between landmarks in the lower 48 has been featured in the Washington Post and on Discovery News. In fact, Tracy Staedter of Discovery News can be credited not only with encouraging Olson to tackle this problem, but also with determining the list of landmarks he used. If you have a road trip you’d like to optimize, check out his code here. And, because cars don’t run on math alone, we also consider the necessity of refueling on the road. In particular, we ask Laura McLay to weigh in on gas station safety, as she computes the conditional probability of blowing yourself up while you’re pumping gas. Along the way, we consider the role of approximation in math, the field...

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics have recently launched an initiative to identify several grand challenges facing the field of mathematics education. This special episode collects thoughts from several past guests - Ed Silver, Jeremy Kilpatrick, Megan Franke, Judit Moschkovich, Barbara Reys, and James Tarr - about what they see as important areas for future research.

In Racism and Segregation, Anna and Annie call on two people whose online contributions have helped paint a picture of racism and segregation in this country. Dustin Cable’s work on the Racial Dot Map paints this picture in a nearly literal way; see what we mean here. Also, check out his methodology and code, and see one source of his inspiration–the work of Brandon Martin-Anderson and Peter Richardson–here. Nicky Case and collaborator Vi Hart created a playable blog post called Parable of the Polygons earlier this year. This interactive site demonstrates the Nobel Prize winning work of Thomas Schelling–work which concludes that small individual bias may be responsible for the neighborhood segregation we see so clearly in the Racial Dot Map. Want to understand how math can help us better understand bias, racism, and segregation in this country? Listen to episode 1, Racism and Segregation, now.

In our fourth episode, we speak with Stephanie Weirich from the University of Pennsylvania on the Zombie language and Dependent Haskell. Stephanie is a long-time contributor to Haskell, having been involved in the design and implementation of features such as generalized algebraic datatypes, higher-rank polymorphism, type families, and promoted datatypes. She has also been a participant in Trellys, a project with the goal of combining proofs and programming in the same language. Zombie is a different kind of dependently typed language, eschewing automatic β-reduction in the type checker for an approach based on explicit equality rewriting, which enables new ways of combining proofs and programs, as well as new forms of proof automation. Meanwhile, as languages designed for dependently typed programming come closer to practical applicability, Haskell is also moving towards full dependent types. We discuss the challenges and opportunities available at the cutting edge of Haskell.
