Podcast number nine in the As We May Teach… series is now available:
This podcast returns to the concept of math as a language that can be "read" by everybody, with the assistance in this scenario of numerical simulation and modeling tools.
Resources for this podcast are listed below. If you develop new models of your own using the resurces mentioned in this podcast, please let me know in the comments — I'd love to feature them in a future podcast.

The eighth podcast in the As We May Teach… series is now online:
The theme for this podcast: how visualization and computational tools can make chemistry more accessible for a broader audience, and increase everyone's understanding of the subject at the same time.
As always, the resources for this podcast are listed below. If you have questions about the tools used in the podcast, by all means please post them in the comments — I'll be happy to answer them.

This week's podcast in the As We May Teach… series is now online:
This podcast focuses on the use of visualization tools as a way to provide everyone access to mathematics as a language they can "read" and apply, even if they have not taken advanced courses in the subject.
The resources for this podcast are listed below. If you have examples of uses of visualization tools in math that you would like to share, by all means please do so via the comments.
