Our complex society demands of its next generation not only mastery of quantitative skills, but also the confidence to ask new questions, explore, wonder, innovate and succeed. “Exploding Dots” is a mathematical experience that completely revolutionizes our thinking of school arithmetic, algebra, and beyond. This lecture promotes the idea that by looking into the simplicity of seemingly complex ideas we can teach ourselves joyful intellectual agility, develop the confidence to rely on our own wits, and find lasting success. Attendees are invited to experience deep creative play and true joyous mathematical analysis, from kindergarten to university level mathematics. The story of Exploding Dots has been selected as the roll-out topic for GLOBAL MATH WEEK 2017. For more information please visit https://www.theglobalmathproject.org/gmw
