I'm scrambling to get everything together for tonight's Theory Radio show - 7pm Pacific with Jonathan Ames - tune in earlier if you want to hear whatever music I queue up, because I think I'm getting an hour extra pre-show show time. Fun!
Coincidentally, today my first public radio piece goes on the air. It's on Marketplace Money, which airs over the weekend on NPR stations across the country. One station somewhere broadcasts it Fridays, so it's now conveniently up on the web. They're calling it Math in the Real World; I called it Algebra, 25 Years Later. In it I try to answer the adolescent question, "Do we really have to know this stuff?"
