Wild About Math! Making Math fun and accessible

Julie Rehmeyer – Inspired by Math #21

Over the years I've enjoyed Julie Rehmeyer's craft of weaving together serious mathematics into stories that engage those of us who enjoy popular math and science. I recently had the chance to interview Julie and discovered that her exuberance for math is just as great as her talent for writing. Listen to the podcast and see if you agree.

  1. Nice to hear your podcast and learn that the I Hate Mathematics! Book and Math for Smarty Pants were helpful to Julie. That makes my heart sing. I wrote the I Hate Mathematics! Book 40 years ago(!), and I’m still working to make the world better for children through mathematics, now blogging and tweeting.
