Keynote Speaker - Dan Finkel
After completing my PhD in mathematics at the University of Washington, I decided that teaching math is the most important contribution I can make to the world. I’ve devoted much of my life to understanding and teaching the motivation, history, aesthetics, and deep structure of mathematics. Math is a maligned and mistreated subject, often mis-taught, often misunderstood. My goal is to give everyone the chance to fall in love with mathematics. Whether you excel or struggle, whether you’re a teacher or student, parent or child, if you want to learn what math is really about, I can help.
