What makes a great podcast?
Interesting topics and a thoughtful host.
Here’s my list of several that meet this requirement.
The Joy of X
Hosted by Dr. Stephen Strogatz, New York Times best-selling author of Infinite Powers, the first episode isn’t released until January 22nd, however, I’ve been a fan of Dr. Strogatz for some time and have high expectations for this podcast.
The Mr Barton Maths Podcast
Hosted by Craig Barton, a UK educator and author of “How I Wish I'd Taught Maths: Lessons learned from research, conversations with experts, and 12 years of mistakes”. Mr. Barton regularly hosts interviews with top educators and provides discussion on best practices.
Make Math Moments That Matter
“Wondering how to create a classroom culture where students don’t want to stop exploring mathematics when the bell rings? Kyle Pearce from TapIntoTeenMinds.comand Jon Orr from MrOrr-IsAGeek.com team up to uncover how we can Make Math Moments That Matter for every student in the math classroom from Kindergarten through Grade 12.”
Math Before Breakfast
Hosts: Tracy Proffitt, Ruth Erquiaga
“Three mornings a week, we meet before breakfast for an early-morning run. We spend most of our time planning and reflecting on what’s happening in our classrooms. This has become our favorite professional development, so we figured, why not share these moments with you.”
Build Math Minds The Podcast
”We are math educators who used to teach math the traditional way. Flip lesson by lesson in the textbook, directly teaching step-by-step how to solve math problems. But now, we are working to change that to a style of teaching math that is fun and meets our students where they are at, not just teaching what comes next in the textbook. We want to encourage our students to be thinkers, problem solvers, and lovers of mathematics…we are wanting to build our students math minds and not just create calculators. If that is you, then this podcast is for you.”
“Shares ptactical tips and strategies with educators on how to liven up their math curriculum so they can harness student curiosity, build number sense, and develop math reasoning skills that are transferable to all parts of the math curriculum.
