Woo-Hoo! The Mathematics and Education of the D’oh-Nut A Review of Simon Singh’s The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets
I am a mathematics educator working in a Faculty of Education, at a mid-sized university. I have degrees in mathematics, teaching, and education related to the teaching and learning of mathematics. I also have twenty years of experience with school boards as a secondary school mathematics teacher and department head. It is from these experiences, knowledge, and professional practice that I approached this book review—from a place of how I see the world around me and work to understand it. I love thinking about and working to understand teachers’ beliefs, problem solving, and professional learning in problem solving contexts, and thus my secondary school teacher ‘self’, or identity, is quite interconnected to my mathematics education researcher ‘self, or identity.
