Volumes, the MoMath book club
Tuesday, November 15 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Volumes continues! Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and author Allison Henrich for an online discussion of Allison's Living Proof: Stories of Resilience Along the Mathematical Journey.
The stories in Living Proof provide support and inspiration for mathematics students experiencing struggle and despair. If students keep working, if they keep seeking, they’ll be rewarded through the mind's ability to engage and to notice when something good has happened. This powerful collection also shares strategies to lessen the harm mathematical struggle can cause. Teachers of mathematics can wreak profound damage on students by unintentionally conveying an expectation of non-success; they can also, again often unintentionally, have a profound positive impact with a simple, kindly encouraging remark.
Allison Henrich is a Professor in the Mathematics Department of Seattle University. She edits MAA FOCUS, the newsmagazine of the Mathematical Association of America, and has written and edited books on topics from knot theory to undergraduate education.
