Math + Love…really? Yeah, really.
The next logical question is what does that look like? That is the fun part, trying to figure out how to love others through the teaching and learning of mathematics so they in turn can love others through the teaching and learning of mathematics. Thus, the following mission and vision:
to love people through the teaching and learning of mathematics
every teacher using the teaching and learning of mathematics to love their students, communities, and world
That’s it. Now to the work of living out the mission and working toward the vision.
This site is built and maintained by Dr. Joel Amidon, who is an assistant professor in the School of Education at the University of Mississippi. Joel’s interests lie in designing, enacting, and examining mathematics instruction that moves all students to work with mathematics to analyze, question, and improve their world. Simply put, he is interested in thinking about what it means to teach mathematics as an act of unconditional love.
He also enjoys writing autobiographical statements in the third person.
