a podcast about thinking classrooms and teaching math

Ep 2 – Gale Russell

Kyle and Dean are joined by Dr. Gale Russell (@GaleForcedWinds), a professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Regina. Gale shares her insights on building a Thinking Classroom and how Peter Liljedahl’s work has influenced her teaching of pre-service teachers. She also talks about the importance of creating a safe and inclusive learning environment for students.

Listen in as we discuss some of the barriers and misconceptions we face when trying to change how math is taught, mathematical safety, assessment in math, and how mathematics is so much more than what we typically teach.
