    John, do you find the content of this book is influencing your questioning when folks walk into the STE(A)M room, or in what you are thinking of doing for SAT?

    I have read some excerpts of the book, and I believe I’ve read about the Circles before. Thanks for sharing this. Dan

      That book taught me that talking about math or math concepts can be done in a fun and engaging way. Perhaps that has affected my practice, but I think Mighton’s books are having more impact on me.
