About this session

Driven by a passion to support and grow mathematics education, Jordan believes we always need to be on the lookout for meaningful math moments that spark curiosity for learners in authentic ways. Join Jordan as he takes you on a journey from his early beginnings as an educator struggling to support students in mathematics, to discovering 3-Act Tasks while cleaning out his inbox, to growing into a curriculum writer for the Make Math Moments Community. In this session, Jordan will share his experience developing an idea inspired by his 4 year-old son, baseball and a large consumption of donuts, to a multi-day unit supporting educators and students across the Make Math Moments Community.
