Show Notes

Ashna Sen is a best-selling author and former academic in geophysics and mathematics. In her recent book, Re-Imagining Mathematics: Learning through the Magic of Nature, the Arts and Friendship, Sen explores our natural relation to mathematics and how current pedagogies and methods of teaching us about the subject miss the mark. If you live in fear of numbers or have been searching for a holistic integration of mathematics in life, this podcast is the perfect antidote!
