Carry the Two pulls back the curtain to reveal the mathematical and statistical gears that turn the world. An initiative of the Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation, the podcast presents unique perspectives from the fields of mathematics and statistics and uses stories to convey how mathematical research drives the world around us. Each episode tackles a different topic—from modeling how bees in a swarm make group decisions to how we can use textual analysis to reveal surprising changes in policy documents.
The first episode features Professor Carrie Diaz Eaton, Associate Professor of Digital and Computational Studies at Bates College, who guides listeners through the analysis techniques she and her colleagues use to analyze language around equity and justice in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine) education policy. Carry the Two can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you access your podcasts.
The National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) advances STEM education to ensure all students, especially those furthest from opportunity, thrive and reach their highest potential as problem solvers and lifelong learners who pursue their passions and tackle the world’s toughest challenges.
With the Math in the Media program from the American Mathematical Society (AMS), teachers can stay up-to-date with math in current events and get ideas for classroom activities. The site has two components: Digests of Math in the Media and Tony Phillips’ Take on Math in the Media.
Founded by a former math teacher and school leader, Black Girls Love Math (BGLM) uses a research-based approach to create an engaging, encouraging, and culturally conscious space for Black girls to explore and discover math.
