About this Episode

Dr. Nick Wasserman, Associate Professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, discusses his work in making explicit connections for secondary mathematics teachers about how the work of teaching (say, Algebra I) is related to advanced mathematics courses (such as Abstract Algebra).

Among other items, we discuss the book he recently edited, Connecting Abstract Algebra to Secondary Mathematics, for Secondary Mathematics Teachers, and his collaborative work on the NSF-funded project ULTRA: Upgrading Learning for Teachers in Real Analysis.
