Featured Tech Talk – Gladys Um – How to Talk About Math

Listen to Gladys Um – Awesome InRhythm Engineer, deliver a fascinating yet truly useful talk on exactly ‘HOW’ we should talk about Math.

From Gladys:
“In ‘How to Talk About Math’, I argued that the way to make math more accessible to general audiences is to present the big picture, build intuition, use precise language, and use simple but realistic examples to illustrate concepts. I put these principles into action by talking about group theory, a beautiful branch of mathematics that reveals the ‘isomorphism’ – or equivalence – between seemingly disparate things such as movements of triangles and permutations of arrays.”
