A workshop for teachers that offers the tools, courage and expertise to combat negative stereotypes of mathematicians as "nerdy" and "boring." Before many students can be motivated to achieve in math, they must first see its value in their own lives. Effective teaching of these students speaks to them where they live. "Making Math Cool!" delivers easy-to-implement, hands-on activities to turn even the most hardened student into one that says, "Hey, that's pretty cool - and so is my teacher!"
