How to get money to change mathematics education
I actually don’t know how to get money to change math ed. But I still went to the poster session featuring all sorts of projects funded by the NSF Division of Undergraduate Education. The first impression was the strongest: there were so many posters! This means that the NSF DUE really wants to fund innovative teaching projects! The second impression was that many of my friends and acquaintances were funded, which means there are people near me I can learn a lot from (like how to get money to change mathematics education). Below are a few pictures and highlights of the event.
