Darren to Present at Porcfest

Student's work.

An example of a student’s work: Pascal’s triangle

Darren is officially on the schedule of porcfest. There he will present about ending government induced math anxiety.  He will discuss his Mathematical Playgrounds and  arithmetic promotion he has been doing this year. Darren will discuss how geometry is an appropriate subject for a young learner, as well as a tool that helps boost students engagement with the material. This is a great opportunity to meet Darren.

This year Darren has been teaching young people aged 6 to 11 basics of arithmetic and discussing mundane to advanced geometric concepts. Every Tuesday Darren has met parents and engaged students with planned activities, games, and lectures intended to encourage mathematical thinking and discovery. Students help direct the actives. Lately students have been very interested in the Mandelbrot set. These more exotic topics keep up student excitement level while learning more mundane addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Darren intends to produce children with minds that do not fear mathematical topics, but rather are comfortable with them. This should avoid mathematical anxiety that is such a common result of public education.
