Singapore Math Adds up for US Teachers

Check out a radio interview I did with Voice of America in 2010 by following the link here:

Singapore Math Adds Up for US Teachers

In this interview, published August 9, 2010, I am interviewed by Faiza Elmasry.  She was a delight to talk with during the interview.

One very special note: During the interview you get to hear from two of my favorite teachers:  Gertie Walls taught first grade during the Singapore Math Project.  She always has a way to make math into something joyful and exciting for the kids.  Also on the audio tape is Johnette Roberts, who is known to all her students as “Miss Sunshine.” A true friend and collaborator, Johnette was the hub of a many-spoked wheel that was the Singapore Mathematics Project.
