On today’s show, we’re bringing on Sunil Singh, a colleague, friend, and fellow Ontarian from the math education world for a second time.

Sunil, the author of three books (Life of Pi, Math Recess, and Chasing Rabbits) with his fourth on the way (Sonic Seducer), joins us to share his unique insights into effective teaching and learning of mathematics.

In this episode, Sunil highlights the significance of rich, narrative-driven mathematical content in facilitating engaging teaching experiences. He unveils the two essential pillars for becoming an effective math teacher, while also unraveling why the number 70 is weird and its potential to captivate students' attention.

Sunil guides us through the strategic elements that school districts should prioritize when shaping professional development plans for math educators. He introduces the concept of developing a K-Lifetime mathematics program, emphasizing the importance of cultivating lifelong mathematical curiosity.

You’ll Learn:

  • Why finding good, rich content that tells the story of mathematics is important for effective teaching and learning of mathematics;
  • The two things you need to strengthen to be an effective math teacher;
  • Why 70 is a weird number and how you can use that fact to uplift your students;
  • What school districts should focus on when developing their professional development plan;
  • How to develop a K-Lifetime mathematics program;
  • Why helping your students to trust mathematics is one of the most important outcomes you can have as an educator.
