I firmly believe in Federico Ardila-Mantilla’s axioms:
Axiom 1. Mathematical talent is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.
Axiom 2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.
Axiom 3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.
Axiom 4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
In the Fall of 2018 Lisa Kaylor, Noelle Sawyer, and myself with Felipe Ramírez as our faculty mentor began the Directed Reading Program (DRP) at Wesleyan University. There will be a post explaining what DRP is and how it started. For the time being, Noelle has a really nice explanation of the program and her first semester as a mentor here. Also, the Wesleyan Chapter’s DRP website can be found here.
Below is a list of the readings I have mentored:
If you’re interested in learning math on your own, like mind maps, but don’t know where to start, I highly recommend giving Learn Anything a look. It is a fully open source search engine, so you can also contribute back to the project. It also has mindmaps for a number of other subjects.
If instead you prefer perusing notes that work you through examples give Paul’s Online Math Notes a look!
