Synopsis: Students typically are not given the opportunity to see the wondrous side of mathematics because it is often taught as all scales and no music. Help your students: 1) Discover the power of mathematics as the danger of short-term loans is exposed in a dramatic fashion. 2) Investigate math mistakes in the news media and their potential consequences. 3) Watch as mathematics shows the futility of depending on corn-based ethanol to lower our dependence on oil imports. 4) Learn the surprising answer to how much money a hybrid car will save its owner because of reduced gasoline usage. These and other fascinating math investigations will allow students to see the power of mathematics as it cuts through deception and flawed thinking to reveal the truth.

About the Author: Ed is a popular presenter at math, homeschool and gifted education conferences around the country and has approached gifted education as a parent, teacher, and school board member. His students will testify to his ability to make math fun and challenging for them as well as his unique sense of humor which comes through in his classes and workshops. Ed has taught students of all ages and abilities since graduating from Oberlin College in 1974. He holds an Iowa teaching certificate with K-12 endorsement in Gifted Education and a Masters degree in Gifted Education from the University of Northern Iowa. Ed is the author of several books for mathematically gifted children.
