Cake is the Secret to Math? Yes.

When you combine a professor of pure mathematics with dessert recipes, you get Dr. Eugenia Cheng’s fantastic crusade to make math more palatable.  After attending her talk at Math for America last week, I have been watching her videos and reading her work.  I couldn’t agree more with her that we need more emphasis on teaching toward appreciation and the academics will follow.  Grab a copy of her book, How to Bake Pi here.
