Doing Math in Public

In the spring of 2010, Steven Strogatz wrote a 15-part series on the elements of math for The New York Times. To both his and his editor’s surprise, each piece climbed the most emailed list and elicited hundreds of appreciative comments. Strogatz recounts his adventures in bringing math to the masses and shares the lessons he learned about what works — and what doesn’t — when it comes to making math accessible.
