I co-presented “Escape from the Textbook!” with Carlos Cabana at the Asilomar meeting of the California Math Council. The turnout was good, and the talk was well received. A bunch of people joined the Escape from the Textbook! community in the following days, and several said they’d come to the February 12 conference. (You should too — we have fantastic speakers lined up. Jo Boaler will talk about engaging disaffected students in algebra, Paul Zeitz will pose some interesting problems for us to work on, and we’ll get a chance to collaborate and network. More info, registration.)
I’ve posted the slides on my Web site.
