James Tanton  
Tanton writes wordless volumes of creative and surprising math puzzles, accessible approaches to calculus suitable for standardized test preparation, and curriculum "tidbits." Download his free guides to fractions and "to everything quadratic," and watch videos on the Pigeon Hole Principle, the Two Pancakes Theorem, Squine and Cosquine, "Twinkle Twinkle and Math" (on the Kruskal Count), and more. Tanton earned his Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University, and now teaches high school math fulltime, where he set up a center of mathematical excellence and seeks to bridge "the gap between the mathematics experienced by school students and the creative mathematics practiced and explored by mathematicians." He offers a course on how to think like a mathematician, as well as on learning quadratics without memorization.
