Last month, I did an interview with Jamila Bey for The Voice of Russia radio in which we talked about how to get math students to think more critically and creatively in American public schools. (In other words, this has nothing to do with atheism.)
If you’re interested, you can listen to the interview here. Good luck getting over your discomfort with the word “Maths”
I gave a similar talk at the 2011 Secular Student Alliance Conference last month (and I’ll be doing a longer, modified version of it at Skepticon IV in November) — video’s not available yet, but I’ll post it when it is.
