Why

I'm an adjunct professor working with undergrad and grad students. I teach a methods course and supervise student teachers. I'm a long-time teacher (40 years) but have little formal math training (just through basic calc). I desperately want to provide my students (and all of theirs to come) with the love and joy of math that comes from self discovery. I have no strong knowledge of any tools but have an ability to create lessons that are discovery based once I'm familiar with the aim of the lesson and understand how the tools are to be used.

I will involve my students as well in this project and I hope all will benefit from their exposure.
