Math: A practice in logic and a way to think

  • Podcast

Math at McCallie is not an exercise in learning numbers and equations, but instead, it is “a philosophy, a practice of logic” and a “way to think.” And it is fun. That’s the message of four of McCallie’s math teachers as they discuss their academic discipline in the latest edition of McCallie’s podcast series examining the various academic departments at the school.

For some students, math is challenging, the panelists say, but guided by their teachers, all students can, with a bit of effort, discover the wonders of math. And it can be fun. That fun aspect of math is evident in this discussion, with a lot of laughter, storytelling, and even a limerick.

The podcast, hosted by Dean of Faculty and Curriculum Sumner McCallie, is part of McCallie’s growing Stories from the Ridge podcast program and can be found here or by searching for McCallie Stories from the Ridge on most major podcast platforms.
