|Jake Scott, high school teacher in Maryland|
Jake Scott, a high school teacher in Maryland, has found a way to make learning math easier (and more fun) - he raps about it! The WP published an in-depth article about his work recently; a very positive account. He creates math videos under the moniker 2 Pi, though it's not his primary method of instruction. It's a unique tool he uses along with traditional classroom learning, and a very effective one, if only to keep interest in math alive. He has uploaded a number of well-produced math rap videos on YouTube, making math accessible to everyone. Now we can all be Triangle Experts. If we had teachers like him years ago, we might not have feared word problems so much!
