In my current projects on linking research and practice in mathematics education I am called to create illustrations and visual manifestations of ideas. I have also found this lens to be supportive in my teaching. In reading student papers, where ideas are still forming, I ask: Can you draw this idea?

(Think of doing a forward fold swan […]Read More Lead with your heart.
Habit forming. March 2, 2018 I’m working on a new habit of opening my computer to continue my writing. I’m working on a new habit of being OK even when I’m in what I sense to be an uncomfortable situation. With bells ringing, trucks beeping, people talking, fans whirring, engines, motors, beings, all conceivably […]Read More Habit forming.
