Don Cohen was born in Jersey City, N.J. He has a B.A. and M.A. from SUNY-Albany, NY and M.S.from RPI,in Troy, NY. He has taught all ages of students for 44 years, the last 22 of these as co-founder and teacher of The Math Program. After 7 years of teaching in a junior high school, he realized there must be a more enjoyable and effective way to teach math. He searched for alternatives. This led to designing new curriculum for N.Y. State; learning about mathematics and creativity from Bob Davis with The Madison Project; learning what real teaching is about by observing great teachers such as Sue Monell; teaching teachers; working on Plato (a computer-based education system at the U of I); all before Don and his partner invented The Math Program. These are the good old days! Don has three fine sons and six terrific grandchildren. He is a watercolor artist (see cover).Review:
This book has been translated into Japanese and a gentleman there is planning to put the English and Japanese version on a CD-ROM, for sale in Japan and the rest of the world.
.. Much lip-service is given to education as it ought to be. Your materials guide us to education at its best. It's always exciting and rewarding to work with your materials. -- From the publisher
This is a book of problems to work on and think about. Archimedes, Newton, Euler, my students and I have worked on them also -- they are important. Important mathematically and important for understanding problems in your life. Get out some paper, a pencil and a calculator. Expect chaos and confusion, then you'll be on your way. This is not a linear book, but do get started on the ideas in chapters 1 and 2 first, then you could jump to chapter 6 or 8 or 13. If you are a parent or teacher please allow your child to look at the answer sheets and to work with other people on the problems! This book is not a 1 year course! One could spend two months on one problem. -- From the Publisher
