An exceptional, accessible math podcast.

Think you know what math really is? If high school and maybe some early college math is all you got, think again!

A bit drawn out. . .

Particularly with the interview of the developer of Mathbot.com, there are numerous studies that demonstrate the negative influence of using external rewards to manipulate children into accomplishing whatever tasks. Interestingly, his last words about the state should be applied to himself and what he is doing with Mathbot. I have no objection to the software itself — only the promulgation of rewards. Of course there are instances when rewards can be used and are effective, but to paint in broad strokes, this way of using rewards does not aid in child psychoeducational development.

Good math; some dumb comments

This is a moderately interesting podcast with fair explanations given an audio format. But when they comment on other things (cults, elitism ) they can be somewhat clueless. One guy is real smart, the other isn’t.
